“Another adapted recipe from one of my favourite cookbooks: Step-by-step cookery series " Salads and Summer dishes". I like this because there's no mint, no tomato like in many other raita recipes and the addition of chili powder gives it extra zing. Cooking time includes 30 minutes chilling time. ZWT REGION: India.”
