Pomegranate Raita | Pomegranate Yogurt | Raita Recipe

Pomegranate Raita, a refreshing and delicious yogurt/curd with pomegranate.More than a recipe this post is just a idea for making delicious yogurt. All you need to do is put everything together and your delicious yogurt is ready in minutes. It can be served as room temperature or as chilled, both way it tastes amazing. Coming to pomegranate, here it's bit difficult to get the good quality pomegranate. Mostly they are too sour and doesn't suit to our taste. But fortunately for the last few times, we got good pomegranate from the local store here.  Apart from eating as it is, i have been adding pomegranate seeds in raita, fruits salad & curd rice. My personal favorite is raita/yogurt, the mild pink color is really inviting and the yogurt is mildly sweet with fantastic pomegranate flavor. If you like pomegranate and have the habit of eating curd/yogurt, do give it a try!!
I didn't grew up eating curd/yogurt as it is, in our home we used to have it with rice, mostly curd rice is the way to end our meal. If there would be more curd/yogurt left after the meal, then we sprinkled some sugar on it and had it. I got introduced to all those fruit flavored yogurt when we were in US especially from the hotel breakfast. When i was new in the foreign land, apart  from the cereal & bread, the fruit flavored yogurt was my savior in the hotel breakfast menu especially when we travel and stayed in hotel. It was yummy and really liked them a lot. So after that i used to make flavored curd at home, but instead of adding awful lot of sugar like the commercial ones, i would make them without sugar like Indian Raita recipes., the natural sugar in the fruits in just enough for us. Similar to this pomegranate raita/curd, strawberry , raspberry raita can also be made, that too tastes good. It's definitely a healthy choice for dessert !!! But today, i have served this raita along with our meal. Now let's checkout on how to make this simple yet delicious raita.
