Pomegranate Raita | Anar Raita

anar raita
Pomegranate Raita or Anar Raita is nice Raita for having its fruity taste. It’s little different that our traditional Raita, I generally go for Simple Raita or boondi Raita, but this time making little different.

I have made plane pomegranate Raita with little spices like cumin powder, black pepper powder and salt. Some people add sugar or mint and coriander or onion also. But I want to go with Pomegranate , so we can feel Pomegranate’s freshness with yogurt.
We can have pomegranate Raita  with any kind of pulao or biryani recipe. If you are more with pomegranate, have Pomegranate Juice.
