beetroot raita

Raita is a curd based condiment which is an important part of  Indian cuisine. Some of the spicy Indian dishes would be incomplete without a serving of raita. For eg. One cannot imagine biryanis or parathas without raitas. Beetroot and Pomegranate Raita is a  perfect accompaniment for all kinds of dishes, especially the spicy ones.
