Aloo ka raita is prepared with curd and boiled potato. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates which is a essential component of daily diet. Potatoes when consumed without fats and boiled are good for health. Aloo ka raita however not so common but is a very nice side dish for your lunch. Particularly this raita is prepared during fasts/vrat. It sounds unusual but is pretty good in taste and as for me, I am a potato fan and can have it in almost any form. If you have potatoes already boiled, it takes only 2-3 minutes to prepare it. It goes perfectly with kuttu, rajgira or singhara paranthas, sama k pulao or khichdi. So lets start with the recipe.

1/2 cup Boiled mashed potato (roughly mashed)

- Take curd in a big bowl and add 1 cup water and whisk it till smooth with the help of a beater or blender. Then add spices and again whisk a little, add potatoes and mix well with spoon.
