Kaddu ka Raita

Raitas are such an important part of Indian summer meals, isn’t it? πŸ™‚ Whether have it all by itself or enjoy it with your favourite pulav/biryani, chappati or paranthe (plain or stuffed). It’s amazing the varieties of condiments and side dishes we have along with the already elaborate meals!! Well, why not… Food is FOOD! ❀
I love every sort of raita and kaddu ka raita happens to be an all time favourite. An extremely easy recipe follows for the same. πŸ™‚
