Sweet Raita Recipe, How to make Sweet Raita Recipe

Sweet raita recipe is a very simple, easy and quick raita recipe where beaten yogurt is flavored with Indian spices and a bit of sugar. This is the perfect accompaniment to help cool the palate and enhance the flavors of a savoury dish. I made this raita to be served as a side dish with my lunch.

Its good to have raita during summers as yogurt is cooling for body. It can also be served as a side dip with aloo tikki. I have added chopped slices of apple in it, u can add any fruit of your choice or serve it simple/plain also.
Serve this sweet raita as a side dish for dal-rice combo or with aloo tikki or sabudana khichdi or roti-sabzi combo as you shown in my below pic.
