Pomegranate Mango Raita Recipe – Simple Fruit Raita
Pomegranate Mango Raita is a tasty and easy side dish. Raitha is a blend of yogurt, spices, fruits and veggies. Raithas are so refreshing side dish with pulao, biriyani etc. They are similar to south Indian pachadis.
Compounds found only in pomegranates called punicalagins are shown to benefit the heart and blood vessels. Punicalagins are the major component responsible for pomegranate’s antioxidant and health benefits. They not only lower cholesterol, but also lower blood pressure and increase the speed at which heart blockages (atherosclerosis) melt away.
Mangoes are very nutritious, being a good source of vitamins C and A, as well as dietary fiber, potassium and vitamin K. Mangoes are also low in calories and contain antioxidants.
Yogurt is made by culturing cream or milk with live enzymes and good bacteria, which results in a deliciously tangy and creamy treat. Yogurt is nutrient rich because it is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals for its calories.
Yogurt is a unique food because it is a cultured milk product, made by adding certain “friendly” or “good” bacteria called probiotics to milk, skim milk, and/or cream to produce a thicker and more textured product. These “good” bacteria are live active cultures that are similar to the ones that already exist in the human digestive tract. They help maintain and restore the delicate balance of both “good” and “bad” bacteria necessary for a healthy digestive system.
