Fruit Raita is a delicious and healthy dip that is best had along with a meal or whenever hunger strikes. This yummy dip is prepared with yoghurt and diced fruits, both great for digestion and packed with nutrients.
Fruits such as banana, pomegranate, pear, strawberry, pineapple, cherry, orange and apple can be added with cucumber and tomato and mixed with Indian spices to give it a unique twist. Tempering the yoghurt adds a different flavor altogether.
I have added a little bit of Rooh Afza, a rose syrup which gives a peculiar taste to the raita.
You can also add some diced boiled potatoes and onion to this raita.
Tempering is optional. You can serve it without tempering too.
Also have you tried my Pineapple Raita recipe. It has a very unique twist and tastes out of the world, if I can say so myself 🙂
Tips to make best Fruit Raita
Cut the fruits only when you are ready to add them in the raita.
If making this fruit raita beforehand, do not salt and sugar to it. Add these two ingredients only when you are ready to serve. Otherwise the fruits will leave water and make the raita thin.
This raita tastes best when made using fresh fruits. Canned fruits do not give it a very nice taste.
Use seasonal fruits to make this raita.
Adjust the amount of sugar and salt according to your taste.
You can choose to skip tempering over the raita.
