Neither something nostalgic like my other posts nor any special story….! It’s just a bowl full of Pineapple Raita which took me 20 minutes to prepare…a dish on 3rd Anniversary of my blog! One of Husband Man’s favourite and a super easy dish…
A popular Indian Curd/ Yogurt based Dip; we love Raita as an accomplishment to lunch and/or Dinner. I personally prefer Fruit based Raita instead of Boondi Raita or Potato Raita because of the food value and also for the sweeter taste.
It is always better to use thick o Hung Curd for Raita. Thick Curd gives the Raita a Rich and Creamy texture! I have used Fresh Pineapple in my Raita, if not available Canned Pineapple can also be used.Print
