We had a couple of 90+ degree days in Seattle last week and I made this cool, refreshing raita then. Its really very simple to put together and goes well with pulav/biryani or parathas. It is also a good picnic food if you can carry it in an ice box.
Here's how I make it:
1 cup yogurt
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp black pepper pwd
2 tsp peanut powder
1 cup finely chopped veggies - onion, tomato, cucumber and carrot
Cilantro to garnish
Whisk the yogurt with the salt, sugar, pepper and peanuts. Add the chopped veggies. Garnish with cilantro.
This cool raita goes to the Side Dish event at Veggie Platter.
