Raitha – Onion, tomato, cucumber & mango

Raitha or thayir (yogurt) pachadi in Tamil is a condiment that can be served with rice or roti. It’s a mixture of vegetables and yogurt seasoned with herbs and salt. Below is a simple raitha recipe with just 4 vegetables, cilantro, salt and of course the main ingredient YOGURT.





Onion – 1 finely chopped

Tomato – 1 finely chopped

Cucumber – 1 small finely chopped into cubes

Raw mango – ½ finely chopped into cubes

Yogurt – 1 cup thick yogurt

Cilantro – 10 sprigs finely chopped

Salt – as per taste


STEP 1: Chop all the vegetables and cilantro.

STEP 2: Add all the chopped vegetables to a bowl and add salt. Mix well.

STEP 3: Add the yogurt, half of the chopped cilantro and mix well.

STEP 4: Garnish with the remaining chopped cilantro and serve.

TIP: Raitha tastes good with roti, pulao rice or biryani. Instead of adding plain curd to white rice, you can mix the raitha with cooked rice and have it with pickle.
