Experiment with different herbs and spices with this if you like.  

You can also add some finely chopped or grated vegetables like cucumber, carrot or pepper.   Even chillis.

250mls/1 cup/9 fl oz of plain yoghurt (Greek is nice but any plain yoghurt is fine)
Juice of half a lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon of ground coriander
1 tablespoon of fresh chopped mint or 1 teaspoon dried mint
1 clove garlic, crushed
salt and pepper to taste

Just mix all the ingredients together, transfer to a small serving dish and serve.

To Serve:
This raita recipe is really versatile.Traditionally raita is an accompaniment to an Indian meal but it makes a delicious and healthy dip too. I also think it's a perfect accompaniment to vegetarian burgers.
