Sweet Indian Raita

If you like Indian food and are not lactose intolerant, you like Raita - an Indian yogurt sauce. I have not personally tried this unusally sweet Raita recipe, but I am planning on doing so soon. Here is a very unique approach to a classical Indian condiment:

350ml - yogurt
50g- shelled walnuts
75g – seedless grapes
2 bananas
5ml granulated sugar
salt to taste
5ml freshly ground cumin seeds
1.5ml freshly roasted cumin seeds
Chili powder to garnish

I am planning on tossing everything into the blender and then topping the result off with the chili powder. I'll see how it goes.

This recipe was extracted from the Their method for creation is as follows:

Place the yogurt in a bowl, add the grapes and walnuts, slice the bananas straight into the bowl. Add the sugar, salt and ground cumin and mix them softly. Before serving, sprinkle chili powder and cumin seeds.

Good luck.
