cayenne pepper, or to taste
salt to taste
kiwis, peeled and diced
chopped fresh cilantro
I'm not especially fond of kiwi, but this was delicious. The combination was surprisingly zesty. It was a refreshing change from the typical boring cucumber-yogurt raita. I will make this recipe again. (I made it with the very creamy Mediterranean-style thick yoghurt, and substituted hot sauce for cayenne pepper as I didn't have any on hand. I also added extra kiwi after I realized how good this combination is.)
This reminded me a lot of tzatziki, and makes a nice addition to spicy food however we found it to be a little too sweet. Perhaps from using over-ripe kiwis, the juice made the raita sweet and runny. If I do make this again, next time I would recommend using kiwis that haven't quite ripened yet.
This was delicious served with chickpea curry, my only complaint is that it became runny very quickly, I think next time I will give the chopped kiwis a little squeeze with a clean towel to reduce the amount of juice they release into the yogurt.
This is a delicious, easy recipes that puts the finishing touch on your Indian meal. The addition of kiwi is inspired. I serve this with the chickpea curry recipe, and my husband thinks I spent hours in the kitchen. Diner is prepped in 20 minutes.
A tragedy. I made it after reading the good reviews, but my dinner guests were appalled. The end result had a strong, unpleasant bitter taste. Possible reaction between the ingredients? It was so embarrassing!! I followed the recipe to a tee too.
I made this with mango instead because I didn't have kiwi. It is different & quite yummy. A fun twist on traditional raita.
