Pumpkin & Pomegranate Raita

Serves 4


  • 1 cup of pumpkin, lightly steamed/roasted & thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 cup thick yogurt
  • 1 sprig of mint leaves, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp chaat masala
  • 1/4 tsp toasted cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • salt & black pepper, to taste


  1. Toss everything into a bowl and serve as a side dish. Best eaten with curries, lentils or just with a spoon!
  2. I didn’t add any additional salt because the ready-made chaat masala had enough seasonings.
