Climate is really hot and these days I don’t feel like eating rice for lunch. That too a big no to the regular cooking- sambar, rice etc. Always feel like drinking something chilled. Coming to today's post, I usually eat pomegranate as such. Sometimes add chaat masala and have it. This time when I got pomegranate, after making pomegranate juice for VJ, I wanted to try this pomegranate raita. I just made it simple but the taste was really good. I am not sure for which main dish this will go well, but I had as such and it was delicious! pomegranate-raita-recipe

Pomegranate raita recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch - Sides
Prep Time:10 mins     |  Cook time: 0 mins     Serves: 2


Curd / Plain yogurt – 1/2 cup

Pomegranate – 1/4 cup heaped

Milk – 1/4 cup

Roasted jeera powder  - 1/4 tsp

Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp OR

Green chilli – 1

Salt – As needed


  1. This is the way I cut the pomegranate. Slice the head  and bottom of the fruit as shown with a small knife (paring knife), cut the skin alone carefully, by running the knife, over the fruit. Do not do it deep. Now you can open and break the fruit into four. Carefully collect the fruit with out the white parts/skin .
  2. Beat the curd smoothly with milk, in a mixing  bowl, add the other ingredients and mix gently.

Serve chilled, its so good to eat as such! pomegranate-raita
