ABOUT Mint and Pomegranate Raita RECIPE

Instead of paying the Valentine's Day markup at a restaurant, indulge in a special meal on your own turf. There are several ways to show you care, and preparing a special meal is one of them. This pleasant fruity raita is a delicious combination of mint, coriander and pomegranate pearls with the cool, refreshing quality of yogurt. This pretty raita is the perfect antidote to hot and fiery curries.
