Broccoli Raita Recipe

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 Raita


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

Garnish with chopped carrot if you wish, I do that to add colour and crunchiness to the raita.

We had it with pulao, you can try this with any parata, pulav, variety rice.
If you are looking for something different either for raitha or for broccoli then this is for you, how about giving a miss to the usual raita this Diwali and try this broccoli raita for a change? Does this sounds interesting to you?
