Lahsuni Methi Ka Raita

Raita is something we all are familiar with, as it is one the most well-liked accompaniment with any sought of Indian meal. It is basically whisked yoghurt flavoured with any seasonings, veggies and even fruit of one’s choice. Some raita is with tempering and some without it. Well, am a fan of both type, be it a plain or tempered or flavoured. One such my most favourite is Lahsuni Methi ka Raita, sounds different ..right?? But, this is an absolute relish to go with any kind of meal..in fact it works stunning with just plain khichdi too. Lahsuni ( fried garlic) flavour enhances the aroma giving it a perfect punch to methi and yogurt along with a balanced taste of salty, sweet and sourness. Serve this different yet outstanding lahsuni methi ka raita with Soya bean PulaoAkhni Pulao, Kadhai paneer Or Bhuna Gosht or Dal Makhni, it will enrich your meal to the best one.

    • hi Lori, dry methi can be used but quantity here would differ …for 3/4 cup of ypgurt you can use 3-4 teaspoon max of it as it is a bit stronger than the fresh ones

      Thanks
