A Mild and Delightful Side Dish

Raita is a yogurt-based side dish that tends to be served alongside spicier dishes such as fried rice, pancakes, or roti. Cabbage is a good source of vitamins, protein, iron, and dietary fiber. It helps to keep your heart healthy, and it may also help lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

This raita is delicious and comes together quickly. I hope you try it and enjoy!
