Easy Basic Raita Recipe

So, here's the last of our Indian food videos for now (though we will be doing the saag feta that hubby makes and is -amazing- sometime in the not-too-distant future). This is just a simple and delicious condiment to go with the rich and unctuous curry. Raita actually works as a condiment for any number of delicious and rich curry dishes, and provides a bright and sour contrast to the rich and spicy curry gravy.

Raita, like so many recipes, is made differently all over the place. This is a pretty basic one with just cucumber and onion, but I've seen raita that includes tomato, carrot, and even pineapple or mango. We seasoned with just lemon juice, salt, toasted cardamom pods, and some dried hot pepper, but you can also use things like cumin, ginger, and mustard if you want. We like to keep the flavour profile very simple to keep it from getting muddled.
