Raita is an Indian salad, refreshing and low in calories. Two or three spoonfuls make an ample serving. I found this recipe in the Beltane Papers magazine.
- 1 1⁄2 cups plain yogurt
- 1 cup finely chopped raw vegetables (can be radishes, cucumber, green pepper, green onions, tomatoes or beets)
- 2 teaspoons finely-minced fresh ginger
- 1 dash cayenne
- 1 dash curry powder
- Stir vegetables into yogurt and vegetables.
- Season with a dash of cayenne and curry powder.
Delicious! It's so fun to experiment with this basic Raita recipe. Thank you for sharing!
This is a great recipe for radish! I made this with 2% greek yogurt and radishes. Unfortunately I did not have fresh ginger, so I used enough ginger powder to give a slight ginger flavour. I also used a few dashes of curry powder and a bit of salt. This would be great mixed into a garden salad, or just as it is. I will definitely make this again and again, trying many different vegetable combinations.
I used a microplane zester to mince the ginger and used cucumbers as the vegetable.
