BM# 76: Week 4/ Day 3
Theme: Bookmarked Recipes
Dish: Bhurani Raita

For the final day of this month’s blogging marathon, I have a simple yet delicious Bhurani raita aka buhani raita or boorani raita. This raita is popular in Hyderabadi cuisine and is usually served as a side to spicy biryanis to cool things down. Recipe is bookmarked from Veg Recipes of India.Hyderabadi Vegetarian ThaliThis bhurani raita was part of my vegetarian Hyderbadi thali. I admire people who make elaborate thalis — one such inspiring blogger is our dear Vaishali, who has a wide variety of thali — both Indian and International on her blog. Whenever I’m looking for ideas for party food or thalis to make for the blog, the first place I go to is Vaishali’s blog.Bhurani RaitaMy Hyderabadi thali was inspired her Hyderabadi cuisine post. I made a fraction of her elaborate spread which was in itself one of my biggest cooking feasts. I made this cooling bhurani raita to serve with the spicy vegetable biryani I made in the thali.

I personally love raitas but don’t make them often because of my husband’s aversion to milk based dishes. He cannot stand the sight and smell of yogurt in particular. So I make raitas and all when I’m having company or when I’m cooking for myself.

This raita has finely minced raw garlic that gives it an interesting flavor. Also I don’t use red chili powder in raitas, so this was another interesting addition as well.
