Strawberry raita recipe

 Strawberry raita in a serving bowl
Strawberry raita recipe - This sweet and sour raita is a perfect accompaniment  for pulao, spicy rice or biryani. It also goes well with poori and phulka. Even I like to have it as it is. Strawberry is a seasonal fruit which is available only a few months and it is a perishable fruit. So I make milkshake and raita when it is available fresh. Earlier, I was making only milkshake with it,

off late, I started to make raita which is not only tasty but also keeps the body cool. When the strawberry in the raita absorbs the sweet yogurt, it tastes absolutely delicious. The raita has thick creamy texture as I have used strained thick yogurt. This is an easy dish which can be prepared with only four ingredients. The process is very simple, so try  strawberry raita and enjoy.
