CARROT RAITA / PACHADI


 Raita is a nice accompaniment with meals and we can try out a variety of them with different veggies and fruits. Here is a simple one with carrots. I have given a South Indian touch with a light tempering. You can skip it if you like and sprinkle some chaat masala instead.

Ingredients:
Carrots .... 1/2 cup (grated)
Yogurt ..... 1 cup
Salt ........... to taste
Coriander leaves ... 1 tbsp.
Green chillies ..... 1 chopped finely

For tempering:
Mustard seeds .... 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida ........... a pinch
Oil .................. 1 tsp


Method:

1. In a pan heat the oil. Add the tempering ingredients.

2. When they crackle, add the grated carrot and saute for a minute. Switch off the gas and let it cool.

3. Mix the prepared carrot into beaten yogurt. Season with salt and stir in the coriander leaves and green chillies.
