This tomato raita was served in a meal in our family function. It was made by a very famous food caterer in our native town. I loved this raita so much that I made sure to get the recipe from him. This is a cooked tomato raita recipe. Very tasty and flavorful one. It fits perfectly in a south Indian meal. Raita recipes with a tempering is known as thayir pachadi in Tamil. What I like the most in this tomato raita recipe is that the green chillies are fried very well in oil. Fried green chillies tastes great when added to curd. If you can handle I suggest you add more green chillies in this tomato raita recipe.
