Onion Carrot Raita

Onion Carrot Raita is a simple and colorful creamy dish to compliment any of the spicy Pulao or Masala Rice items. This recipe is in same lines as any other Raita, but with the exception of  grated carrot addition, which makes this dish bright and beautiful. This recipe comes from my mom's kitchen, mom always makes this version of raita when she makes Vegetable Pulao or Tomato Rice. This goes well with Paratha or Chapathi as a side. I absolutely love the bright color that carrot adds to this dish and also it adds little sweetness which cools off the zesty onion flavor (.. plus extra serving of  fresh and raw vegetable in your meal... that's totally cool with this cool dish). Here is the recipe, Njoy!



Ingredients:
Recipe Source: My mom's Kitchen

Yogurt (or Curd) - 1 Cup
salt - 1/2 tsp
black pepper - 1/4 tsp
onion - 1 medium
green chili - 1
carrot - 1 medium
cilantro ( coriander) - 1 tsp for garnish

Method:

  1. Add the Yogurt to the medium bowl and mix it well to remove any lumps and that makes it creamy and soft.
  2. Add salt and black pepper and mix it well. 
  3. Chop the onion and Green Chili into very thin slices and add this to the Bowl. Mix it well. 
  4. Add the grated carrot on top and garnish with cilantro. 

That's it, creamy, cool, colorful Onion Carrot Raita is ready!

Tips:
After adding the Carrot to the Raita do not mix it. Just leave that as a topping until you serve it. If you mix the carrot becomes soggy and does not give good taste. By the time you serve the carrot should be fresh and crunchy in this dish. 


take care and see you soon here, 
until then Enjoy your Holidays...
