This can be had either as an accompaniment or dessert.

Strawberry Raita


2-3 persons

You Will Need:

  • Fresh strawberries – about 4 per person
  • Yoghurt – 250gms
  • Red Chilli Powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Fried Cumin Powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt – to taste


  • Chop the strawberries into tiny cubes and keep aside
  • In a bowl, mix the yoghurt, salt, red chilli powder and fried cumin powder
  • Tip over the strawberry cubes in this and mix them in
  • Refrigerate
  • While serving, spinkle a small pinch of fried cumin powder on top again


  • This dish can be sweetened too
  • Fried cumin powder can be made at home. Fry about 100 gms of whole cumin seeds without oil, in a pan. When an aroma emanates, take them off the flame. Let the cumin cool slightly. While still crispy grind them into a fine powder and store in an air-tight jar.
