I used to belong to the BBC food forum (until they decided, in their wisdom to close all their forums ) and one of the members was an Indian lady - Mamta - who has a wonderful (well I think it is ) website with so many brilliant Indian recipes. There are lots of raita recipes - just type raita into the search box.

Make the yogurt in earthen or clay pots, it will absorp excess water and the yogurt will be thick. If possible use new pots each time you make. We generally do this, earthen pot is very cheap here.

Try adding a pinch or two of asafoetida, it has a distinct flavor which may be what you're missing. =)

food, indian, recipe, yogurt

Indian food Hi, Does anyone have recipe (not cumin based) for Indian yogurt raita condiment that has a pleasant but more "sour" flavor that I seem to be missing. Is there a herb that subtly intensifies the agreeable "sour" taste I am missing? also, the mango lassi recipes I find are also missing this subtly sour taste... anyone? 3 stars 1 reviews
