Cherry Raita

 It's summer time and cherries are available for a short time. So to enjoy it, I made a couple of cherry recipes to save for the time when they are not available (Cherrytime syrup) and to enjoy it now, Cherry raita. I made Cherry Raita for eating along the side of stuffed parathas and everybody enjoyed it.
