Tomato Raita

Indian Yogurt Sauce with Tomato- A curry house favourite

Indian Yogurt sauce with the addition of tomato is so nice and cooling. It’s great served with papadams and spooned over spicy lamb kebabs and biryanis.

It can be made well ahead of time so why not give it a try next time you are planning that big curry feast? Whenever I invite friends over for a curry evening, I always make a nice selection of raita, pickles and chutneys. These are not only nice to look at but they also add so many different flavours to the meal.

All of the raitas, pickles and chutneys on my blog are easy to prepare but your friends needn’t know this. They will think you’ve slaved for hours.
