Raita makes a great sidedish for any spicy biryani or pulav. Commonly we make raita with onions, cucumber and stuffs like that. But frankly it can be made with most of the veg. One of the veg i love to use the humble radish. Radish has a weird smell in it, but once it is cooked and made into this raita it taste really good..I served this with my cabbage soya biryani..
