Aloo Raita recipe | Potato raita | alu ka raita

Presenting yet another raita to beat the summer heat namely Aloo raita which is made by mixing boiled potatoes, curd, green chilly and garnished with chopped coriander. This raita is very delicious .

I have been trying various raita varieties to beat the summer heat .

An Indian meal is incomplete without a yogurt dish or plain yogurt. Yogurt is a great accompaniment to the spicy curries,biryanis and also  completes the meal by providing protein .

 few mint leaves, chopped (optional)
1/2 tsp finely chopped coriander leaves
Oil for frying 1 tbsp
