- Take a mixing bowl. Using a fork or a potato masher, mash the avocados until they get nearly smooth in the bowl.
- Now, add the whisked hung curd. Put in chopped onion, tomato, cucumber, green chillies, lime juice, coriander, roasted jeera powder, chat masala powder, and salt in the same bowl. Mix everything very well. Serve it immediately or chilled.

The etymology of raita is hard to source but since the traditional tool used to whip dahi smooth is called a rai in Hindi (what we Punjabis call a madani or mathani, to make mattha), there could be a verb that transforms and connects rai to raita. Another view, probably the correct one, is that the term for this relish comes from a combination of rai, the spice, and tikta or teekha, sharp (the taste); from Sanskrit *râjikâtiktaka, mustard pickle: râjikâ, black mustard — The Hindu.
