Raita is one of my favourite sides. I love having a bowl full of chilled raita with my lunch especially. I don't really enjoy having just regular raita all the time so keep hunting for interesting raita recipes. 

Recently, I tried making papad raita at home and it turned out to be crispy and tasty. So, I thought of sharing its easy recipe.

How To Make Papad Raita?

  • Take fresh curd and add it to a blender. 
  • Add some water and ice cubes to the curd and blend till you get raita like consistency.
  • Take out in a bowl. 
  • Add salt as per taste, red chilli powder, cumin powder and black pepper powder. Chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Take masala papad and place on a hot tawa or microwave. Cook till crisp.
  • Crush papad into small pieces and add to the raita.
  • Top with chopped coriander leaves, cucumber and tomatoes. 
  • Mix well and enjoy with your meal.
