I like to cook Indian food and am missing my pregan raita as I can't get good vegan yoghurt. I am trying a suggestion today to use coconut cream instead of the yoghurt - it hasn't had its couple of hours melding time yet, but first impressions are that the coconut cream makes it far too rich and a bit sweet.

Does anyone else make raita and can you share the recipe?

I've made the vegetarian times tofu raita a bunch of times and have had omnis ask for the recipe. I make the following changes to the official recipe:

-leave out the peanuts
-grate the cucumber and squeeze out most of the water instead of thinly slicing
-use a little bit of cayenne instead of the serrano

You can make your own yogurt if you want. I've been making an adapted version of Miyoko Schinner's yogurt recipe (from her cheese book) and I am happy with the results. You would need access to soy milk, unroasted cashews, and a plain vegan yogurt (it can be a not great tasting yogurt since you're only using a little for the bacterial cultures). Then you can add in cucumbers, spices, herbs, etc.

i would think blended raw cashews might work as a replacement for the vegan yogurt or coconut cream. i would blend raw cashews with a little unsweetened almond milk, sea salt, and a tiny bit of fresh lemon juice.
