Raita with Cucumber and Mint
This low carb keto desi raita is a classic Indian condiment that works especially well with spicy foods! With added cucumber and mint, it has a wonderful cooling effect!
There are many different variations, and my low carb version isn’t too far from the traditional idea. If you don’t like mint, you could use cilantro instead, and you could add a dash of lemon juice if you felt like it was needed.
Keto desi raita is an Indian yoghurt-based condiment that is served especially with hot and spicy food. It accompanies piquant main courses — like curries and kebabs — perfectly and cools down the heat.
In this 5-Ingredient Keto Raita, the flavours are maximized, and the carbs minimized. Preparing this simple yet succulent raita is a cinch, too: mix all ingredients, let the flavours mingle, and dig in!
