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.

Pin for later
