I put in 5 kinds of veggies so I call it Pancharatna[5 gems] raita.
Yoghurt- 1 soup-bowl full
Onion- 1/2 a small one,finely chopped
Tomato- 1/2 a small one ,finely chopped
Capsicum-1/2 finely chopped
Carrot-2 tablespoons, grated
Cucumber-1/4,peeled and finely chopped
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds- 1/2 teaspoon
Jeera - 1/2 teaspoon
Red chilly - 1 broken into bits
Curry leaves- a few
Coriander leaves/mint leaves to garnish[Optional]
1.Mix all the veggies in bowl.
2.In another bowl beat the curd and salt till smooth.
3.Put the veggies into the curd.
4.Heat oil and put in the seasonings.
5.When they crackle pour over the veggie-curd mixture.
6.Mix well and serve garnished with coriander /mint leaves .
It tastes yumm when served chilled.Can be served as an accompaniment with any rice preparation /chapathi,or if u are like me,have it as such!
