Mixed Vegetable Raita Recipe

A Raita is nothing but a raw salad tossed in curd. Seasoning is purely individual choice. I season it depending upon what it is served with. With Pulao and Biryani I usually leave it unseasoned, but with a regular thali Meal I season it with mustard, Urad dal and curry leaves.

Ingredients :

  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • 1/2 of a small cucumber
  • 250 gms Curd
  • 2 green chillies
  • Salt
  • 1tsp Ghee /clarified butter
  • 1/2 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 tsp urad dal/ black gram dal
  • 2 sprigs curry leaves
  • Coriander leaves

Method :

Deskin the cucumber. Chop the tomato, onion and cucumber fine. Mince the green chillies and crush them with salt. Drop the mixture into the chopped vegetables. Mix thoroughly. Heat ghee in a pan. Drop in the mustard. After it splutters add the Urad dal. After it turns golden brown add the curry leaves. Toss and tip the seasoning into the salad. Mix and refrigerate. Add curd and mix well just before serving. Garnish with coriander leaves.
