How do you make raita?

I like to add yogurt to mix in the ratio as 2: 1, so if I use 2 cups of yogurt, I’ll add a cup of the mix that can include for raita ingredients mixed spinach, banana, fruit (pineapple, mango, and apple) or mint.

It is not compatible for raita because that mixer will be creamy, not super thick but it is extra thick when you give a nice amount of mixed-in in each bite.


This is true of everything that all these things add and blended, and then add mint leaves. But after mix mint leaves the quantity remains the same.
