Salads and raitas is a all time favourite at our place.My daughter is ready to skip the meal over salad...Whenever curd is added to any salad it makes a raita.It makes a great accompaniment with the meal.I prepare similar recipe with Pomegranate.Coming back to the recipe I had heard about green apple salad and other recipes of the same, but never ever had attempted.
Sometime back I saw my fb friend Mitha posting this dish and singing praise of this so much that I was super tempted to try this yummy raita.This recipe is from Asha mayi's recipe book 'The Konkan Saraswath book' .I had bought this book 2 years back after seeing review in Divya's blog even before I knew Asha mayi.Sometime later I bumped Asha mayi in a food group and the rest is history...So this is the first recipe from the book.Thanks a lot Mitha for inspiring me to try this yummy raita.
