Tzatziki Dip: Thyme, Coriander, Mint and Chives – Raita/Yogurt dip

Chives Thyme raita


Raita is seasoned yogurt often served as a mouth-cooler when eating spicy Indian dishes. It also works as a healthy dip for vegetables and pita bread and is good as a side dish. This recipe is inspired by Tzatziki.

  4. This is a real Mediterranean style recipe. I love bulgur and one of my favorite salads is tabouleh. The raita is a delicious accompaniment.
