Carrot Raita With Nuts

Raita is a curd or yoghurt based dish, prepared by adding different vegetables or sometimes fruits also. A large variety of raita is there as long as you think. These are served as a side dish with the main course

Raita has a cool effect on the body and stomach so generally taken in summers. In our country most of the states have a moderate climate for the whole year, so raita is relished widely. In fact, no meal is completed without curd or raita here
Though a large variety of raita is prepared and eaten. Here I am sharing carrot raita today
This raita is a little sweet as red carrot or Delhi carrot (as it is famous by this name) are quite sweet and juicy. Above all, a tadka of nuts like cashew and raisins make it a shahi or royal dish. Kids relish this raita very much. I add mint leaves for flavour and freshness and green chillies for a kick. One can avoid as kids do not like chillies
