Raita

Raita
This is a very simple recipe and raita is usually eaten as a side dish with chicken curry, mutton curry, sambar or just have it as a dessert. A dish by it's own, if you are on diet!
I will list down the ingredients for you below:

1. Yogurt or curd - 100 grammes or more
2. Onion - medium or large
3. Capsicum - small
4. Green chilly - one
5. Tomato -one red small
6. Cucumber
7. Black salt/salt
8. Chat masala (optional)
9. Corriander leaves

Preparation

Cut the onion into tiny bits (lengthwise and then perpendicular)
Mince a small green chilly(seedless)
Half a capsicum would do for the amount of yogurt I mentioned above, cut it to tiny pieces
Use quarter a cucumber, peel the skin and deseed it and cut into tiny pieces
Place all of the above in a small bowl and mix with the yogurt. Add the Black salt/salt according to your taste. To make it healthy, you can also add a teaspoon of virgin green olive oil.
Top it with the fresh cut corriander leaves( a small bunch minced finely) and finally sprinkle the chat masala over the raita and refrigerate it until it is ready to be served.

Bon App├ętit.
