Raita is a side dish, which consists of salted or sweetened whipped curd on its own or with added ingredients like vegetables and sometimes even fruits. The curd preparation is consumed mainly with Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi food. Raita is served more often with spicy food to bring down the burning sensation on the palate, so you’ll see a lot of raitas with biryani and hot gravies.
