Onion Tomato Raita – Onion & Tomato in Yogurt

Raita It has been almost close to a month that I have posted. Thank you everyone for having checked on how I was doing. Now that I am done with the exams, I should be posting some new tried and tasted recipes. I am sure everyone here is enjoying their summers and those of you back home, it is nostalgic with monsoons and the rains especially this is a season to be on the India’s West Coast !
BTW, it is hot summer here, with temperatures soaring upto 100 F. To keep the body and mind cool, today’s post is a blend of ingredients according to Ayurveda,  have cooling effect on the body, a mixture of tomato and onion in yogurt. A perfect accompaniment with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals !
