It is very easy to make at home and we can make it in different ways but taste will almost similar if we use any method. It is one spicy less Raita which is made by Onion and Yogurt. It will be very special and favourite for each and every one especially children. It is also very healthy Raita and it can make within few minutes with limited ingredients. We are using different types of pickles and Raita with Biriyani and Fried Rice but we need to get Onion Raita with these dishes because it is the super combination. Today, I decided to get some variety taste so I used Cumin Seeds here. We can get different flavour when add this ingredient. Cumin Seeds are super combination with Yogurt. To get a little spicy I used Green Chilli. I used very thick Yogurt to get thick Raita. There are a lot of different Raita such as Tomato Raita, Cucumber Raita, Mint Raita and Fruit Raita but Onion Raita is very popular among them. It is better to use in summer season to get cooling effects. I would like to have this with hot plain Rice for lunch and dinner. Sambar and Aviyal is the better combination with this dish for Rice. It is very simple recipe and it can also give freshness. This is completely vegetarian side dish that is made with only natural ingredients. We all will have tasty food this with tasty and healthy Onion Raita. Let us enjoy with this.

Fish molly is also known as fish stew. It has different name in different places. We can write it as fish molee. It is completely a traditional tasty curry.
