Onion tomato raita recipe - how to make onion tomato raita

Onion tomato raita recipe - Today, I am going to share a simplest, easiest and tasty onion tomato raita recipe. As I mentioned in my earlier post, whenever I make pulao, biryani or spicy rice,  I make it a point to serve variety of raitas along with it. The chilled raita not only goes great with biryani and pulao, but also keep the stomach cool by balancing the spice in the food we eat. Serve this tomato raita with Vegetable Biryani.
