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.
  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.
