Tadke wala raita

Updated: 7 days ago


A flavourful, spiced twist to regular raita – any of your choice: cucumber, bottle gourd, pineapple, burhani, kachumber, boondi


A tadka or tempering enhances the flavours of any raita really.


Tadke wala raita makes for a quick, filling snack in between meals, as much as it complements any Indian meal beautifully.

Pair it with lachha parathas and you have a full meal!


If you're new to Indian cooking, here are a couple of raita recipes to get you started.

Burhani Raita

Cucumber Raita


And if you're new to Indian condiments, I do recommend you try these recipes.

Serves: 2

Time taken: 5 minutes


Ingredients to make Tadke wala Raita


2 cups raita of choice

1 tsp ghee

½ tsp cumin seeds / jeera

5 – 6 curry leaves, roughly torn

1 green chilli, chopped


Method of making Tadke wala Raita


Heat ghee in a tadka pan, add cumin seeds. Once these crackle, add curry leaves and green chillies. Fry these for less than a minute and pour over chilled raita of your choice.


In the recipe image above, I've added the tempering / tadka to a grated cucumber raita. The recipe of this cucumber raita is linked in the notes section.


This tadke wala raita is the perfect accompaniment to any Indian meal really. I however, make this recipe of tadke wala raita during my fasts (vrat / upvas) to be served along with tadke wale aloo or jeera aloo.


I do also pair this scrumptious tadke wala raita with Indian sides, like Beans Aloo, Dry Whole Moong on days when I don't want to make dal. Also with this dry-ish Pindi Chole recipe.


Serve tadke wala raita with a chole (chickpeas) biryani or a veggie pulao too.
