vegetable raita recipe with step by step photos. vegetable raita is one of the commonly made raita in indian homes. raita is one dish that often accompanies indian meals and even complements the meal in taste, flavor and nutrition.

vegetable raita recipe

there are quite a number of variations to making this yogurt based dish. the most common as well as popular are cucumber raitaboondi raita and onion tomato raita. most raita go well with pulao, biryani or roti-sabzi combo.

making raita is very easy and quick. just chop some vegetables or fruits and add it to the yogurt. the same is the case with this raita, which is good for kids as well as adults.

there is no set recipe as such for making a raita. the proportion of veggies to yogurt can always be altered as per one’s choice. however, care has to be taken when seasoning the raita with spice powders and salt. there has to be a balance of taste in the final dish. too much of sugar, salt, chaat masala or pepper can spoil the taste.

again, the veggies can be of your choice. you can add veggies like boiled potatoes, blanched french beans, steamed cauliflower or broccoli, cooked corn kernels or cabbage. to make this veg raita, i have used carrots, any colored bell pepper (capsicum), cucumber, onions and tomatoes. if using carrots, then do make sure they are juicy, crisp and tender and not tough or fibrous. also its better to chop the carrots finely. onions can be skipped if you are allergic to them or are making this raita for fasting or vrat.

this a healthy way to include veggies in your diet or to use left over veggies in a healthier way.

raita are always a good accompaniment for pulao, biryani or most rice dishes. they will also go well with dal rice or roti sabzi combination. they can even be had as starters before the main course. this raita also goes very well with jeera rice.

  2. HI Dassana
    nice one, i would like to know how to make those salads in star hotels with sprouts,veges glazed veges what i like about them is their colour looks fresh and they are cooked just right when i try it at home they become mush and lose the colour as well

    • hi priya, which salad… i mean which kind of salad. continental, asian, italian or american. there are thousands of salad recipes. some use cooked veggies like steamed or sauted and some of them use raw veggies. also the dressing are different depending from where does the salad originate.

    • The key is to steam the veggies, so they’re cooked, but still firm to touch. Hope that answers your question.
