Rainbow Raita with Avocado

Avocado is a bland fruit but very healthy.  Many people wonder how to use it on day to day basis.  I buy them regularly and use it mainly on chutneys,smoothies and Raita.   We also like guacamole.    I tried recently in boiled peanut salad and it was very good.   I called this one as Rainbow since it is very colorful.

What you need?

Avocado medium - 1
Carrot shredded-1/2 cup
Broccoli cut finely or shredded-1/3 cup
Green capsicum cut fine - 1/4 cup
Red capsicum cut fine- 1/4 cup
cucumber - 1
coriander greens - 2 Tbsp
Gr chillies
Ginger-1 inch
Yogurt - 1.5-2 cups

How to make?

1. Mash avocado with a beater (you can choose to keep it chunky or smooth)

2. Grate or cut ginger and gr chillies

3.  Mix all the veggies, avocado, ginger and gr chillies in a bowl along with Yogurt

4. Do tadka - Heat 1 tsp oil in a small kadai, add mustard, let it splutter), add 1/4 tsp of cumin seeds and 1/8 tsp of asofoedita.

6.Add coriander greens and mix well.

This goes very well with any spicy main dish like pulao or even chappathis.

Variations:
