Beetroot Raita / Beet Raita – Perfect Accompaniment for Pulav and Briyani

When you have a spicy briyani or pulav, you need something cooling and satisfying on the side..Raitas are perfect for that..You can make raita with whole lot of different stuffs..This is one of the unusual raita, but a very common one made in my house..Amma makes it often, When we were little amma used to put salads or some kind of vegetables in our lunch box..But you know right kids don't like to eat raw vegetables, infact we are very much fizzy eaters..So what she do is, she add some thick homemade curd to those veggies and season it slightly and pack in a small container..We all love curd in our house, so eating those raita is not at all a problem for us..She uses carrot, beets, cucumber for this raita..

This recipe is modified from amma's recipe..But i changed it a little and gave a little touch of tempering to those raita, to make it even more special.. I served it with Beetroot Pulav..Here you go to the recipe

Beetroot – 1 grated
Thick Curd / Yoghurt – 2 cups
Salt to taste
Sugar – 1 tsp
Oil- 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds / Kaduku – 1 tsp
Urad dal / Ulundu – 1 tsp
Coriander Leaves / Cilantro – 3 tblspn finely chopped


Take curd, salt and sugar in a bowl  and mix well.Add in grated beets and give a stir.

Now make tempering..Heat oil and add mustard and urad dal and let it get light brown.

Add this over the raita and garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve with pulav.

Take all your ingrediants
Mix curd in a bowl
add salt and sugar
in with beets
and coriander leaves

Heat oil
