Somewhere I read that the entire meal should be colorful. a meal full of different colors is not only balanced in the nutrition aspect, but also subtly affects our nadis and chakras. I have also added some chopped capsicum and onions to the raita to give it a crunchiness. However this is optional.

I must say that The beetroot carrot raita went very well with dal-rice. It was so nice and different from the other raitas that we usually have at home. In fact I was only having the raita even after my meal. You can also serve this beetroot carrot raita with pulao or biryani.

Few points for making the raita

  1. Please note, I have not tempered the raita as I did not think it was necessary. If you would like to add more flavor to the raita, you could temper it.
  2. If you are making this raita for fasting or religious vrat, then add rock salt (sendha namak). Also avoid adding onions when making for religious vrat or fast as onions are usually not allowed for most religious vrat.
  3. The raita goes well with most rice based dishes and also with biryani or pulao. The raita taste so good that you can just have it plain.

  1. Hi dassana
    Awesome receipe… child has become fond of beetroot n carrots……thanks a ton …..with your recipies it’s easy to make children fond of vegetables…..
    A happy mother5 stars

    1. 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. 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.

  3. 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

    1. 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.

  4. hi i tried the beetroot carrot raita and it came out so good it looks and tastes equally wow! thank you so much.
