Radishes & Raita

Updated: Feb 9, 2023

This is a simple variation of the Indian classic Raita with seasonal radishes, which give this healthy dish the perfect combo of creaminess & crunch.

Radishes are rich in antioxidants and minerals like calcium and potassium. Together, these nutrients can help lower high blood pressure and may reduce the risks for heart disease.
