Onion tomato raita recipe

Kanda-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. 

Onion salad can also be prepared in the place of onion raita. Salad is prepared by chopping the onions finely, to it add the chopped tomatoes, green chillies, coriander leaves and salt. If you want to avoid yogurt, then you can try the onion tomato salad which is equally taste like raita.
