raita recipe collection. Indian raita recipes. Raita and Kachumber are the desi route to including salads in everyday meals. Raitas are made by combining fruits or veggies with curd, while kachumber are veggie combos perked up with green chillies, coriander, coconut and sometimes a tempering too. The curd improves the nutritional quotient by helping you get protein and calcium, along with the nutritional benefits of the veggies. Enhance your meal with uplifting treats like the Cabbage Kachumber, Fresh Fruit Raita or Mint Raita.

Healthy Indian Raitas

While it’s a debate about whether to use low-fat curd or full-fat curd to make a raita healthy, we have a very simple logic. If you are overweight or diabetic, then opt for low-fat curd and if you are looking for ways to consume good fats then full-fat curd is what you must use. Also, make sure you don’t toss in foods with a high glycemic index like sugar, potatoes, etc.

Simply combine fiber rich spinach with ingredients like mixed sprouts, spices or onions and tomatoes to make an array of healthy accompaniments like Palak Raita with Onions and Tomatoes, Spinach and Mixed Sprouts Raita or Spinach Raita, for Weight Loss and Athletes.
