Grape Raita

I love to have some raita to pair with fried rice or biriyani. It was not long ago that I realized that fruits too pair well with curd to make a raita, when I had made the pomegranate raita. So when I happened to think of grapes in my raita, I googled to see if I was the only crazy one to think of such a combo. I was glad to see that they did exist.

But you know what, you should try this raita. Its amazing to see how people go "what, grape raita?" to "wow" after they try it. Grape and curd just pair so well. Even if you have no side to go with your rice, just this raita is enough to make the meal special.

  1. 2 cups of green grapes, washed and cut into half
  2. 1 tsp of roasted cumin seeds
  3. 1/4 tsp of red chilly powder
  4. 1 1/2 cup of plain yogurt
  5. Salt to taste
  6. 2 mint leaves chopped and crushed between your palms
  • In a bowl, take the ingredients, 3-5. Mix it well. 
  • Add the grapes, cumin seeds and mint leaves and mix it again.
  • Serve it chilled.
  1. You could use coriander leaves for additional flavours.
  2. Use different colour grapes(black, red and green) to make it look more colourful.
