Broccoli Raita Recipe
What’s your favourite raita recipe or say which one you make the most? I often make onion and/or cucumber raita followed by boondi raita cause these are most simple to make and takes less time. But then once in a while I do little experiment here and there and this broccoli raita is one such recipe. I get bored of making same broccoli soup, broccoli stir fry, broccoli thoran etc so I try new recipes and this broccoli raita fitted my bill for a Saturday lunch.
Broccoli – 1/2 cup chopped/grated
Yoghurt/Curd – 1 Cup
Green Chillies – 2
Minced Ginger – 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds – 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves – 3-4
Salt – to taste
Oil – 1 tsp
Chopped Carrot – 1 tsp [optional]
1. Wash and grate or chop broccoli. You can use chopped, food processor what ever that fancy you. [In the picture it’s not half cup of broccoli ]
2.Finely chop green chillies and mince ginger well. Beat curd and keep side.
3. In a wok or pan heat oil add cumin seeds and allow it to splutter. Add ginger, chillies curry leaves and sauté until ginger becomes light brown.
4. Add broccoli, salt and sauté for 3-4 minutes in medium flame or until broccoli gets cooked but still crunchy.
