I don't know about y'all, but our grill has been fired up just about every day. 

Hubs loves to grill, we both love MEAT, and it is a great way to add that extra favor, whether it be that touch of smoke from the Traeger, or that yummy flavor you can only get from grilling over charcoal.


See a theme?

We love to accent those grilled flavors with a little sauce on the side. Especially if it is a sauce with a little heat.

So, when I started working on a recipe for Tandoori Steak (recipe coming SOON!), I knew I wanted a little sauce for the side that would really enhance those Indian AND grill flavors.

I had done raita in the past for my Naanchos.

That one was made with cucumber and cilantro as an addition to my Indian influenced nachos.

Think sour cream for regular nachos.

But I knew I wanted this sauce to bring a little heat to the game.

So I researched a ton of riata recipes and decided this one would be perfect.

And it was!

WHAT IS RAITA?


Raiti is an Indian condiment made from yogurt, together with a variety of vegetables, and herbs, and typically served as a side dish to help cool the heat of spicy Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi foods.

It is similar to Greek tzatziki, a cucumber and yogurt dip or sauce. 

Raita cools the heat when you eat spicy food.

INGREDIENTS TO MAKE TRADITIONAL MINT RAITA


One of the things that so many people ask for are easy recipes and this recipe couldn't get much easier!

Just 4 (or 5 if you want to add sweetener) ingredients, pop those into a blender or food processor, and BOOM you are done.

Make sure to store any leftover sauce in an airtight container in the fridge. It should last you several days.

Not only is this riata the perfect sauce for meat, but it is also a delicious low carb dip idea for veggies and even, are you ready for this, watermelon!

Ya, you get sweet and tangy, along with the little kick of heat from the chile pepper.

AH-MAZE-ING!

I even use it as a salad dressing!

  1. I tried this on watermelon and loved it! The creaminess of the raita paired so well with the sweet, juicy watermelon! Yum!
