Aloo Raita / Potato Raita

Aloo Raita %%

I am not sure why and how I missed out on making such a simple and delicious Aloo Raita / Potato Raita. When browsing through recipes to make for the Haryana Thali, I came across this Aloo Raita / Potato Raita and it caught my eyes right away. With the spicy Hara cholia and paneer subzi, I figured that this Aloo Raita / Potato Raita will work great.
After I tasted the raita with the bajra roti, I realized that all I needed was this raita to go along with the bajra roti. It tasted wonderful and paired great with the bajra roti. It also has the most common ingredients. I used some roasted cumin powder as well as chaat masala. Chaat masala is purely optional and you can skip it if you don’t have any.
