Broccoli Raita Recipe

Broccoli Raita Recipe

What’s your favourite raita recipe or say which one you make the most?  I often make onion and/or cucumber raita followed by boondi raita cause these are most simple to make and takes less time.  But then once in a while I do little experiment here and there and this broccoli raita is one such recipe.  I get bored of making same broccoli soup, broccoli stir fry, broccoli thoran etc so I try new recipes and this broccoli raita fitted my bill for a Saturday lunch.
