Radish is very good for loosing weight. So to increase the intake of radish in our diet, I have started making a lot of radish raita nowadays. Moreover, its a great accompaniment to lot of gravies.
Yogurt : 2 cups, Well Beaten
Radish : 1 cup, Grated
Salt : To Taste
Coriander Leaves : Chopped for Garnishing
For Tempering :
Ghee : 1 tsp (you can use oil instead)
Mustard Seeds : 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves : 5-6
Red Whole Chillies : 2 Broken in Half
Chana Dal : 8-10
Take a bowl. Add yogurt. Beat it well. Add the grated radish, coriander leaves and the salt. Mix it well.
Now for tempering. Take a pan. Add the ghee and heat it. Now add mustard seeds. Let it crackle. Then add red chillies, curry leaves and the chana dal. Let it all splutter. Remove from flame and pour immediately on the yogurt. Stir it well.
Its ready to serve.
