Methi Yogurt or fenugreek yogurt is a simple and easy raita you can make in a few minutes. This raita goes very well with parathas, especially, stuffed parathas, and roasted moong dal and toor dal chutneys and rice. This methi raita adds a cooling touch to a spicy meal.

Servings: 2-4
Cooking Time: 2 minutes


  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp cilantro (coriander leaves), finely chopped
  • Salt to taste

For Seasoning

  • Turmeric powder, a pinch
  • 1 green chilli, finely cut
  • 1 1/2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp urad dal (split black gram)
  • 5-6 methi (fenugreek) seeds
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seeds


  • In a bowl, mix the yogurt, ginger, and salt.
  • Heat oil in a small pan for the seasoning. Add urad dal and methi seeds. As the dal starts to brown, add the mustard and green chillies.
  • When the mustard starts to pop, add the turmeric powder. Pour this seasoning over the yogurt.
