Since reading this recipe, I have done some research on "raitas". In my Western way of thinking they are meant to be a cooling garnish to counterbalance spicy Indian dishes. They are made of whole-milk yogurt and chopped veggies or fruits, and seasoned with various herbs. That being said, when I made this I decreased both non-fat yogurt and low-fat sour cream by 1/3. Increased the spices by 50 per-cent, and threw in some dill weed. Used garlic powder instead of mashing garlic cloves. It turned out very well. My only problem was that the "Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori" (on this site) was not spicy enough to warrant raita. Good, though.
