The best raita you'll ever makeHome >> Recipes
My mother used to make tzatziki, the Greek cousin of raita. Yogurt, cucumber slices, garlic and mint. One night a famous Italian physicist and his wife came for dinner. The guest didn't look very keen on the huge portion of tzatziki served on its own as a starter. His wife came to his rescue. 'Emmanuele is not very hungry'. That stuck like a private joke whenever we felt a dish was not so appealing.
My raita is very appealing and if you follow instructions on this page, your guests will be begging for the recipe.
