Burani Raita is the ideal companion for savouring perfectly cooked Hyderabadi Biryani. A Mughlai recipe, the Burani Raita could augment your Biryani experience and give it an entirely different dimension. The highlight of this subtly spiced, cool, creamy yogurt side-dish is the fact that it has a hint of garlic flavour to it, making it a great accompaniment for your Biryani.
Making the Burani Raita is no more than a five-minute process. For your Burani Raita to be perfect, take thick curd in a bowl and whisk it well without adding any water to it. Add the following condiments – salt, black salt, pepper powder, jeera powder and shallow fried garlic pieces, and mix the concoction gently. Once it is mixed, sprinkle finely chopped coriander leaves on the top and voila! Your Burani Raita is ready to be eaten. This raita can also be served with non-vegetarian pulao and will give it an interesting spin.
The Burani Raita packs a flavourful punch and makes for a nice cooling counterpart and side dish for the spicier Indian recipes. It also soothes your palate while eating.
