What is raita?

Raita is an Indian side dish of yogurt containing chopped cucumber, mint or cilantro and spices. The cooling savoury yogurt is just what these tandoori sweet potato wedges need. I find that baked sweet potatoes have a lot more flavour than fried, plus you don’t have that extra unwanted oil. I am so excited to share this simple, tandoori roasted sweet potato wedges with raita recipe with you, especially this time of year because finger food is always popular during football season and baseball playoffs.
