Ingredients for the Raw Mango & Pomegranate Raita

(1 cup=200 ml, 1 tbsp=15 ml)

2 cups Beaten yogurt
¾th  cup Grated raw mango
¾th  cup Pomegranate kernels
2 – 3 Green chilies finely chopped
Salt to taste
Roasted cumin powder to taste
Red chili powder to taste
A handful of Mint leaves

Instructions for the Raita

1. Mix all ingredients for the raita and keep in the refrigerator to chill for an hour or two.  Serve chilled.
Notes:
  1. The acidity (sourness) of the raw mango is beautifully balanced with the sweetness of pomegranate kernels. Ensure to choose dark red sweet pomegranates for this recipe.
  2. I have skipped sugar deliberately from this raita; however, feel free to add ½ tsp in case you prefer it sweeter.
