Apple Raita

My mom made variety of Raitas especially when we had family get together (Jamadvaar) We grew up eating this Apple Raita that tasted tart and crunchy and it was one of our favorites. This can be paired with parathas or rice dish. We also added this raita in our Thali to complete the meal. The raita has all the flavors, spicy, sweet and salty and has the perfect crunch. I am sure you will love this one as much as we do.
