Radish Raita

This one is by sis again. I really need to figure out wordpress better!

This is an easy to make summery yogurt based dish, good to beat the heat and keep up with eating different colored vegetables. There is not much use for the round red radish in traditional Indian cooking and this is a good way to use it. Also, the attractive bright red makes it a fun eat for kids!

Ingredients: Serves 2

Red radish ( available in most Grocery stores)- 1 packet


1 teaspoon Fresh ground Pepper/ Herb seasoning powder used for grilling. These are available in most grocery stores and usually contain other spices such as lemon rind, sea salt, dried onion and garlic.

Mustard seeds and Jeera

Curry leaves to garnish


Wash the radish and shred it into a bowl. Add yogurt and salt. Then add fresh ground pepper/herb seasoning according to your spice level.

Season with mustard seeds and jeera in oil. Garnish with curry leaves.

Serve with rice/roti.
