Capsicum raita

By now you must be aware of my love for yogurt.I like it in any form and the enjoy it as raita with rice varieties.Sometimes I like to savor the raita chilled just by itself.Total bliss!!!

Here is one of my favorite raita that can be whipped up in a jiffy..

You need:

Capsicum/Bell pepper - 1 medium sized,finely chopped.
[I used green and red to add color to the dish]
Yogurt / Curd - 2 cups,thick
Salt - to taste

Seasoning :

Mustard- 1 teaspoon
Jeera-1 teaspoon
Red chillies- 2 ,broken into bits
Oil- 2 teaspoons

  1. Beat the curd with salt and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and put in the seasonings and wait for it to splutter.
  3. Add the capsicum and reduce the flame and saute for a few seconds.If you like the capsicum crunchy,pour it over the curd after sauteing it for a few seconds.Else sprinkle a little water and cook till it is is soft and pour over the curd.
  4. Mix well and serve with a rice dish of your choice.

Happy cooking,
