Banana Raita

Recipe by Engrossed

From: "The Vegetarian Epicure" by Anna Thomas, first edition 1972. This book was a real find! You may want to add a touch of orange, lemon or lime juice to the mashed banana.

Top Review by SarahCKS

Great spice mix. The mashed bananas made it a bit soupy. Next time I'll just cut up the bananas into chunks.
