My second day "Carrot" themed post for the blogging marathon is going to be this simple, healthy raita that can be done in less than 10 minutes. Raitas generally accompany spicy dishes for their cooling effect but I eat it as a snack as well. I have provided a simple version. For variation, add 1/2 tsp cumin powder or a tadka of mustard seeds and cumin seeds. To make it a mini meal, add cooked quinoa / rice / cracked wheat to the raita.
1 cup yogurt (I used fatfree, homemade yogurt.)
1/2 cup grated carrot
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp minced cilantro
1 finely minced green chillie
* Steam carrot until it softens and let cool.
* Beat the yogurt with a fork to get uniform consistency. Add salt, carrot, cilantro and chillie. Mix well and serve.
