 This is an easy and delicious raita goes well with any dish and is a perfect accompaniment to the  Chicken curry I posted yesterday or with  Chicken Biryani
A meal would remain incomplete without a relish or a raita which really adds to the flavor and is especially cooling with spicy food.

So here’s what you need,
Ingredients:
2 onions
½ green chilly
½ cup yogurt
Salt to taste
1 tsp Lemon juice (optional)
Coriander to garnish
Method:
Slice the onions and remove seeds from the chilly (I used only half of the chilly but it’s easier to remove seeds from the entire chilly) and chop finely.
De seed the Chilly

Transfer the onions to a bowl, add salt (I used half tsp) and lemon juice and leave aside until ready to use. 
This adds to the flavor and removes the rawness of the onions.
Stir in salt and lemon juice

Remove any liquid from the onions, stir in the yoghurt and chopped green chilly.
Garnish with coriander and serve!
