Raita is the best dish to reset your tastebuds after a chilli assault. The coolness of the yoghurt, with a touch of sweetness, makes raita a perfect accompaniment for hot food. This grated green apple version, hare seb ki raita, is really simple, and would be ideal to serve with any of the hot dishes in this cookbook.

For presentation you might reserve some of the apple and cut into batons to decorate the dish
