Curd Raitha (curd and veg mix)

Raitha is a side dish popular in India and it is very simple to make. Raitha can be prepared in various formats - boondi, onion, sev, etc. Boondi and Onion/Tomato Raitha are the two most popular and here is the recipe for both

What you need:
1) 1 cup curd (yogurt)
2) 1 Onion & 1 Tomato or 1/2 cup Bhoondi
3) Salt to taste
4) 1/2 spoon black pepper
5) 1/4 spoon red pepper
6) 3-4 finely chopped coriander leaves
7) 1/2 water

1) Mix curd and water in a bowl. Stir until they form a uniform mixture
2) Chop 1 onion & 1 tomato into small pieces
3) Mix Onion/Tomato along with curd
4) Add salt, pepper and mix well
5) Garnish with coriander

Replace Onion/Tomato with Bhoondi when preparing bhoondi Raita. This goes along very well with Aloo parantha or Veg Biryani
