Roasted tomato raita, tomato raita with mustard flavour, 30 days 30 salads recipes, easy and healthy salad recipes, Healthy Indian salads, day 22

 Roasted tomato raita, is a delicious, flavourful accompaniment to all your rice preperations. The usual chopped onion and tomato raita, gets a very different twist. This personally has become my go-to raita from now on. The flavour of roasted tomatoes goes so well with curd and is very well complimented with crunch of peanuts. Really, if you have to pick one raita to be served for your pulaos, biryanis and fried rice then I highly recommend this roated tomato raita. The garlic flavour added to curds will remind you of the famous burhani raita, and you will have your guests asking for more! So on day 22 of 3o days 30 salads series, we have a very flavourful and easy roasted tomato raita.
