Dill Raita


Dill was on sale in my local Indian store.I wanted to make the Dill Raita as an accompaniment to the Aloo Paratha I was planing to make for dinner. It was as simple as can be.
Dill - One Bunch (probably 1 cup washed ,chopped and filled tightly)
Yogurt - 2 Cups
Sour Cream - (Optional) 2 Tablespoons
Salt - As Needed
Garnish
Oil - 1 tsp
Garlic - 4 Cloves (Chopped)
Ginger - 1 Inch Piece (Peeled and Chopped)

--->Wash the Dill
--->Drain it well
--->Chop it
--->Beat the Yogurt and Sour Cream well
---> Mix in the Chopped Dill
--->In a Pan, add the oil, and when it gets hot, add the chopped garlic and ginger to it and saute for a few minutes
---> Add the garnish to the yogurt and dill mister.
--->Just before serving add salt, so it doesn't get watery

An option is to ad some cucumbers to this, in case you dont like the stong taste of Dill. It is tastes better than the tzatziki you get from costco!

Serve with Hot pulav or Roti or Paratha
