Raita is basically a yogurt based salad, and One of the most important dishes on our dining room table. Raita is used to tone down spicy food and add a nice acidic zing to your meal.
Most times when you see raita in a restaurant it will still be white. If you notice, it's because a lot of seeds are used instead of powder. Seeds were a big problem for my grandma, so to make it friendly for everyone we created Bone CleanerTM The Perfect Spice Blend, which we use in this recipe.
2 cups plain yogurt
3 Roma tomatoes
Kosher salt just a pinch
1 green onion, chopped
1/4 c chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons Bone CleanerTM The Perfect Curry Spice Blend.
2 tablespoons lemon juice
