Raitha has always been my favourite. I just love my mother's raitha. She prepares different types of raitha like cucumber raitha, carrot raitha,raddish raitha and mixed raitha with tomatoes,onion and cucumber. My friend Preethi, prepares carrot raitha with dry fruits which tastes good with rice. I would be sharing it very soon!
Lot of variations can be done with one's taste. Recently I had prepared Raddish raitha -It was a great hit-My Japanese friends just loved it!
