Tempered Banana Raita – Easy and quick Recipe

I have shared Tomato rice  recipe two days before on blog and told you that i am right now trying some easy south indian recipes.
I have made this raita recipe as accompaniment.It goes Truly BEST with spicy tomato rice.It has Sweet flavor.

Actually , I tried to give south indian touch to this raita recipe. I have tried many raita recipes including my mommy’s styale banana raita as well.We generally didn’t give any tadka to raita recipe in my home.
This is very refreshing raita recipe.Banana and yogurt are the main ingredients.My mom used to add cucumber in banana raita.well,It is perfect summer-cool recipe. I always make simple cucumber raita, Lassi Or even gujarati kadhi.These are our handy and most favorites dishes.
Hope you guys will like it..
I am using Prestige Hard Anodised Cookware Tadka Pan here
