How did I made

As I said earlier,it’s so easy to make.All you need is good,thick yogurt. Then mix salt and cumin powder. Adding cumin powder is purely optional to give a taste. If you do not have it,you can skip it. Then added grated carrots. in a pan, temper mustard seeds and curry leaves, pour it into the raita. Mix it and serve along any spicy rice dish. I served this carrot raita with Mushroom Biriyani. You can also serve this with Fried Chicken BiriyaniVegetable Biriyani.

INGREDIENTS

Carrot – 1 medium sized

Thick yogurt – 1 1/2 Cup

Cumin Powder – 1/2 Tsp

Salt – As required

To Temper

Oil – 1 tsp

Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp

Curry leaves – few

METHOD

  • Peel and grate the carrot.
  • In a bowl, take yogurt. Mix in salt and cumin powder.
  • Add the grated carrots and mix thoroughly.
  • In a pan,heat oil.
  • Crackle mustard seeds and add curry leaves.
  • Pour this tempering to the yogurt mixture.
  • Serve.

NOTES

  1. Cumin powder is totally optional but it gives nice flavor to raita. So I usually add in all my raita. If you don’t have cumin powder, make your own by dry roasting some cumin in a pan and grind it. You can store this powder in air tight container for future.
  2. Tempering is optional. If you do not want to temper just avoid it.
  3. I used coconut oil for tempering. You can use any vegetable oil.
