Pomegranate Raita

Raita is the perfect accompaniment to really spicy dishes . Everyone has a different version of it , this particular one is a family favourite , it is a perfect balance of sweet, tangy and tart with a little hint of spice , it goes particularly well with a spicy biryani and also it is a pretty looking raita so here goes.........


1 pomegranate
500 gms yoghurt
a pinch of chilli powder
a pinch of cumin powder
salt and pepper to taste


Cut the pomegranate in half and remove the seeds
Add the spices to the yoghurt and whip it well
Add the pomegranate seeds and mix it well .
Now serve and enjoy .


  1. What an interesting combo of flavors with chili and cumin along with the pomegranates! I guess I am used to sweet things with yogurt. Looks delicious!

  2. never added chili powder in raita .. would like to try this.

  3. I have a pomegranate tree in my garden and I was looking for recipes regarding its fruit. I usually use it in salads. Thanks for the recipe. I will definately give it a try soon. (Maybe today...!
