Pomegranate-Apple Raita in Strawberry Yogurt

   A simple and easy-peasy raita recipe to go with any routine meal or fasting(vrat) meal.. A perfect recipe to include some proteins and vitamins-minerals in the fasting days. There are endless variation for this kind of Raita, but as I'm preparing this for Navratri Vrat, so I took care to use the spices which are allowed during fasting days. So this raita is just spiced up gracefully with minimum ingredients...let's have a look of this Strawberry flavoured, sweet-spicy and delicious Raita....
