It is especially beneficial if eaten during summer as it’s good to have more of raw fruits, vegetables and curd in hot weather. However, we make this raita using only fruits and not vegetables. And trust me you, it tastes so yummy that, it can be eaten just like that as a mid-meal snack.

Notes

  • You can use any seasonal fruits you like.
  • Use fresh curd. Sour curd won't taste good in this raita.
  • Refrigerate fruit raita. It tastes better cold.
  • I don't add sugar in this raita as fruits add in the required sweetness. You can add a pinch of sugar if you want a sweeter raita.
  • Some people don't eat pudina and kala namak while fasting. You can skip pudina in that case and use sendha namak instead of kala namak.
