Pineapple and Mango Raita

Our East coast has been transformed into a winter wonderland. Last week we got about 20" snow. They are calling for some more snow tomorrow. Kids are having a blast with No school days..and parents are praying for no MORE SNOW !!!. But you take what nature gives you right ..so we made the most of all the snow by making a Snowman, making snow balls, made snow angels. If you have any more suggestions, please let me know as we have more snow coming...

This raita is just a diversion from the winter blues and the likes. This refreshing Raita will surely help you look forward to Spring and maybe even Summer!!! Its a flavorful, delicious and healthy accompaniment to any meal. 

  • 1 cup pineapple diced
  • 1 cup ripe mango diced
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 1 small red onion finely chopped
  • 1" piece ginger finely chopped
  • 1-2 green chillies chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh cilantro leaves chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup yohurt whisked
  • salt to taste
  • white pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp chaat Masala (optional)
Preparation : Add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix it gently. Adjust the salt. Your Pineapple and Mango Raita is ready to be served. Enjoy.


  1. Raita looks even more delicious due to addition of pineapple. Great combination.

    BTW Tomorrow I m baking ur pineapple upside down cake,Adapted from u and one professional baker too(Nigella Lawson).Will post it.I dont know what cream of tarter is ,I checked it in supermarket cudnt find it too,so since nigella used pineapple juice I am going to go with that :)

  4. Vineetha..Good to know Spring is on the way and I for one cannot wait for Spring. I'm Very happy to know U want to try my Pineapple upside down cake. Now the cream of tartar is used to stabilize and give more volume to the beaten egg whites. I found it at the baking section of my grocery store. In case you don't have any..you could substitute it with 1/4 tsp of white vinegar. I love watching Nigella Lawson as well...She's really good..Let me know how ur cake turns out..Have fun baking...
