is nothing but a South Indian version of the more popular (North Indian) Raita
. It has a tempering of mustard seeds unlike its counterpart. In this recipe, the unique factor is that it uses Roasted Urad Dal powder/flour
as the flavoring ingredient. It is supposedly popular in places like Tirunelvi
. I think it is also known as Ulundhu Madaskar
. Extremely simple and quick to make especially if you have the flour ready with you (after making snacks like Murukku
, Rice Butter Murukku
, Thenkuzhal Murukku
etc etc). I am partial to this since it provides a bit more protein when compared to other versions made using vegetables/fruits/herbs. I use Greek Yogurt to make it even more protein rich.
