Papad Raita

A simple, easy and quick dish which can double as a summer cooler or can be used as a dip. Served it ice cold, almost in frozen state, to end our lunch and it has got huge applause from my family.


  • Masala Papad – 4
  • Curd – 250 gms
  • Ginger Paste – 1 tsp
  • Sugar – 2 tsp
  • Green Chilli – 2, chopped finely
  • Dry roasted Cumin Powder – a fat pinch
  • Salt
  • Lemon juice – 1/2 tsp

Dry roast the masala papad till they are crisp. Break them into medium sized pieces.

Blend the curd with salt, sugar, a pinch of roasted jeera / cumin powder, lemon juice and ginger paste till it is smooth.

Take the curd in a bowl, add the roasted papad pieces and finely chopped green chilli. Mix in a light hand. 

Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes before serving. Garnish with some more green chilli and roasted jeera powder and serve as after lunch or dinner delight.
