How to Make Dahi ka Raita

I had made this raita a bit hot so that it goes well with biryani. You can put chillies according to your taste.


  • 1 Cup Yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • Black Salt as per taste
  • 4-5 green chillies, finely sliced
  • 2 sprigs coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 5-6 mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp refined oil
  • 1 Red Chilli, roasted
  • Water as required


In a small pan, heat oil. Add cumin seeds. After 20 seconds, add green chillies, coriander leaves, mint leaves and cumin powder. Saute for 10-15 seconds, remove from the flame. Keep it aside.

Take the yogurt in a bowl, beat it till smooth. Add the masala we made and the black salt. Mix well. Now add 1 roasted red chilli; you can break it into small pieces. Add water and mix again. The raita should be in flowy consistency.

Have this Dahi ka raita with Hyderabadi Chicken Dum Biryani.
