Carrot Onion Raita

21 Jul

Carrot onion raita with crunch and a color palette reminiscent of the Indian flag! This cool, tangy accompaniment for Indian meals, with its hint of sweetness, give the perfect balance to spicy Indian gravies.

You Need:

  • Carrot – 1, scraped and grated
  • Onion – 1, finely chopped
  • Green chili – 1, minced
  • Raisins – 10 or so
  • Plain yogurt – 2 cups
  • Salt – 1/2 teaspoon (adjust to taste)
  • Sugar – 1/2 teaspoon (adjust to taste)

How To:

Whip the yogurt with salt and sugar to a smooth consistency.

Mix the grated carrot, chilies, chopped onions and raisins into the yogurt.

Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving to allow the flavors to blend.
