Sometimes, the simplest things hold the most significant value. Have you ever had a pulao or biryani in isolation? No side-dish or raita whatsoever? Or have you had a heavy meal and caught yourself wishing you had something to cool you down? Well, this onion raita holds the transformational power to do exactly that.

A raita is just yogurt mixed with a fresh vegetable (like onion, cucumber, carrot). The coolness of the yogurt in addition to the crunchiness of the vegetable (onion, in this case) provides the perfect vehicle to transform a humble dish like pulao to an elevated – magnificent even, if I may – experience.

So – if you make a lot of raitas, I urge you to try it next time with a simple tadka. The tadka not only adds a depth of flavor but also has a tonne of benefits! This can also be had as a healthy snack by itself.

Here is a quick video recipe on how to make Onion Raita with Tadka –

This goes well with any spicy dish like Tawa Pulao, Biryani, Aloo Paratha, Mooli Paratha, and so on! Make this fresh and consume within a day for the best flavors. If you let it sit longer, the yogurt may separate from the vegetables, making in unpleasant. Moreover, the longer you wait, the sourer the yogurt gets. Try to consume it within the 24-hour window!
