Pineapple RaitaWith a very good combination of fruit and curd, this tasty raita is my kid’s favourite side dish at any dinner or lunch party. What more is required than the good health of my family and this dish is full of nutrition. So I decided I will include this side dish once a week in my regular menu.

Raita in India refers to a yoghurt based dish often served on the side with Indian curries and breads. I guess traditionally it was made to balance out the spiciness in our curries. However, now it has just become an integral part of our meals. Raita can be sweet or savoury depending on what you add to it. Different fruits and vegetables are added to yoghurt and then mixed with a few spices. Pineapple raita is sweet and tangy raita. The most famous raita I would say is boondi raita, cucumber raita and onion-tomato raita. Pineapple raita is one of my favourites.

For pineapple raita, it’s best to use thick yoghurt. So I put my yoghurt in a strainer and let it stand for 15 minutes to get rid of all excess water. You can skip this step if your yoghurt is really thick. Similarly, you can let the yoghurt strain for even an hour or two if there’s a lot of water in it.

Finally, I would like to suggest you a few more recipes from my blog
