Ingredients

  • 1/2 litre curd/yoghurt whip it well
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1 small tomato finely chopped
  • 1 medium potato boiled and finely diced optional
  • 1 green chilly finely chopped optional
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped mint leaves
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. black salt powder
  • 1/2 tsp. roasted cumin powder
  • A pinch of sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. chilly powder optional

Instructions

  1. Whip the curd for a couple of minutes and keep aside.
  2. Now add in the finely chopped veggies. Mix well.
  3. Add black salt, cumin powder, sugar and salt. Taste and adjust as per taste. I generally don't use chilly powder as I prefer using diced green chilly.
  4. Mix well. Chill and serve.
  5. Your delicious veggie raita is ready to serve. Team it with some khichdi and papad and it makes for a delicious, home cooked meal.

Recipe Notes

1. You can add any vegetable or herb that you like. Just make sure they are finely chopped or grated. Grated carrot is good. So is finely chopped capsicum and cucumber. Potato if used must be boiled.
2. Use either green chilly or red chilly powder. If you don't want any heat in your dish, just skip both.
3. Black salt really adds to the flavour so try to add it. If for some reason, you don't like it, you can just substitute with common salt.
4. This will stay in the fridge till evening. Best to serve and consume it fresh.
