Weight Loss: Curd is one of the best foods to consume if you want to lose weight. Here are all the raitas you can make at home to lose weight easily.
When it comes to weight loss, diet plays a huge role. Getting in shape doesn’t come easy and just exercise is not going to help one shed those extra pounds. But losing weight can be a tad bit easier by consuming homemade raita which is basically a lot of vegetables, cumin seeds, black salt, chili powder, salt and more mixed in curd or yogurt.
One raita which is very popular across the country, is boondi raita, but since the boondi is fried this could add to weight rather than reduce it. Here are some raita recipes you can make at home easily to aid weight loss.
