A chunkier version of a typically smooth raita (RI-tah), this Indian condiment is easy to prepare if you're firing up the grill for other foods. Serve with any of the main dishes featured here or as a cooling complement to a fiery curry. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days.
