Makhana Ka Raita Recipe is a simple Indian relish made from yogurt (curd) which is mixed with toasted makhana (puffed Lotus seeds) and Indian spice powders. This is very easy to make and is a variation to the normal raitha made from vegetables.

Makhan or Lotus seeds or fox nut is an interesting ingredient which is rich in Key minerals making it very healthy when added to our dish.
