    • thanks nidhi and thats so nice to know. i know kids can be very picky at times. there are many carrots and beetroot recipes on the blog which can be liked by kids. you can try them too.

  2. Tried the above raita. Turned delicious. Thanks for sharing.5 stars

  3. do you have a recipe for the curd/raita yogurt that you use? I would like to make Indian style yogurt from the beginning with milk for my raita, but I don’t know how.

    • you can check the method here –

  4. Hii i have gone through all of your recipes for navratri fast. Some of them are really useful but how can u use onion in food for fast? And also you have used cornflour in one of your fast dish…Isn’t it a grain? which is not used in fast. Pls reply

    • onions are not used in fasting. in this recipe i have mentioned in the notes in the recipe details about not adding onions if making for fasts. this raita was not even made nor posted during navratri. i have linked it in the navaratri recipes, so that people can make it with the omitting of the onions. its the same for aloo paneer kofta. i have mentioned in the notes section about using singhare ka atta or kuttu ka atta for binding instead of corn starch.

      • ohh ok.. thanks for the reply 🙂

        • welcome nishtha
