Onion Tomato Raita

For any spicy Indian rice dish, like Pulao or Biryani, the creamy raita on the side is must. While there are several raita recipes out there, today I am featuring a basic and simple Raita recipe here. It is made with Creamy Curd ( Yogurt) and Spicy onions. While the creamy yogurt softens the flavors in your rice dish, the spicy onion adds some crunch and zest to it. Here is the recipe, Enjoy!

Onion - 1 small
Tomato - 1 small
cilantro / coriander leaves - 1 Tbsp
salt - 1/2 tsp
black pepper - 1/4 tsp
Curd (Yogurt) - 1 cup

Chop the onion and tomato into thinly slices. Chop the coriander leaves.

Add the chopped onion, tomato, cilantro to the medium bowl. Add salt and black pepper.

Mix it very well (mixing with hand will get best results :-P)

Add Curd and mix it very well.

Taste and adjust the seasonings accordingly. Serve with your rice pilaf, biryani. or it tastes good even with Roti or Paratha.


  • Red or purple onions are best for this recipe.
  • Today I don't have Red Onions, so I have just used the white onions.

Take care until we meet here again..
have a happy friday
