Onion Raita Recipe | Pyaz Ka Raita

Onion Raita Recipe or Pyaz Ka Raita is made with sliced red onions and beaten curd.

Raita is an extremely easy recipe that serves as a side dish in our Indian main course. This is so versatile that you can add any vegetable or fruits to this to get variation.

For this onion raita, you need to keep sliced onions in cold water for 5 – 10 minutes if you want little crunchy bite in raita. Else you can add immediately to the beaten curd along with salt and chillies. As simple as that.

Also add 1 tsp chopped coriander leaves and green chillies to the raita. I also add a pinch of red chilli powder and also chat masala. You can also add black salt in place of regular salt or a mix of both.
