Raita is any combination of vegetable, fruit- fresh or dried, coconut or nuts, spices, herbs, salt, pepper and plain yogurt. With creativity, you can add just about anything to yogurt to make a raita. A raita can be served with most vegetarian meals or enjoyed alone as a snack. Vegan cooks can use plain soy yogurt to make raita, or try a combination of whipped silken tofu and soy yogurt.
