Mixed Veggie Raita

Raita is something very simple to make and would go with anything like pulao. I make this raita to go with sprouts pulao. It tasted very good. I make yogurt at home and like it to be less sour.

What you need?

Onion - 1 medium (cut fine)
Ginger/Chilli paste - 1 Tbsp
Spinach-2 cups
Carrots-2
Green bell pepper-1 full cut fine
Yogurt-3-4 cups
salt to taste
cumin powder-1/4 tsp (optional)
Fennel powder-1/4 tsp (optional)

Note: You can add Tomatoes, Broccoli also. I did not have them while preparing.

How to make?

I used food processor to cut spinach and carrot.

1. Heat oil in kadai, add onion and ginger chilli paste and saute for 2 mins. Add cut spinach and saute. Let it cook for 5 mins.

2. In another vessel, take shredded or cut carrots, bell pepper and any other veggies if using and keep it ready. Add cumin and fennel powder if using. Mix in the spinach mixture. Allow it to cool.

3. Add yogurt and mix well. Adjust salt. You can add coarse peanut powder, fried sesame seeds to enhance the flavour.
