Flavoured yogurt – A highly flavoured yogurt. In India it is served with a biryani.
One cup of yogurt (does not matter if it is full fat, low fat or zero fat)
1/4 cup water
1 large clove of garlic, finely chopped
¼ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
¼ teaspoon red chili powder (or to taste)
1.Mix all ingredients, and gently stir with a fork.
2.Pour in a serving bowl and decorate with a pinch red and black pepper.
3.Consider adding less or more water, depending on the consistency you desire.
This is a highly flavoured raita. It is a specialty from Hyderabad where this is the ideal accompaniment to one of their classical biryanis which usually have a mild and subtle flavor.Normally this is a very “thin” raita, but again, add water to suit your own taste. Also, add salt and red chili powder to your taste.
