  1. I changed it up a bit with lemon juice about a 1/4 cup and red onion only about a 1/3 cup. salt and pepper to taste. YUM it turned out great.
  2. Too much yogurt
  3. Excellent taste and easy to make! I used a little garlic salt in addition to the salt. Made the Raita to accompany the Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce also on this site (and also 5 stars) and Trader Joe's Naan. An outstanding meal!
  4. So easy and delish! Wonderful side served with any spicy Indian dish.
  5. Easy to make good to eat!I increased the amounts of vegetables for this!
