I love to serve this raita cold !
a) Always use thick curd while making any kind of raita.If your curd is watery,tie it in a muslin /cheese cloth.Hang it for 10 to 15 minutes to remove excess water,then use the curd.
b) Red chillies can be replaced instead of green chillies.
c) This raita can be served with rice or paratha/roti.
