Amla raita is one of the amla recipes which does not have the bitterness. I have already posted amla rice recipe which also does not have bitterness. I have grated amla and added it to the curd. You can also remove the seeds and grind it in the mixie. But you should not grind it to a fine paste consistency. It should be a coarse paste. This will give you crunchiness and it avoids bitterness at the same time.

No need to mention that amla is a natural coolant. Curd is also a natural coolant. So, amla raita is a perfect coolant recipe for summer. Amla raita is a perfect accompaniment for chapathi. I will not prepare any other side dish if I prepare amla raita. It tastes so good and goes well with roti and phulka too. Veg briyani is another main course with which we can serve amla raita.
