Raita’s are great addition to any meal. Yoghurt combined vegetables or fruits and flavored with herbs & spices, makes them perfect to be eaten with rotis, paranthas, rice or even a light meal by itself.
Raitas are the constant in my house and I am always looking at more ideas for Raitas. Over time I have also realised that a lot of vegetables we don’t think of adding in raitas actually work brilliantly in them.
Sometime ago, I combined my favorite way of eating bell pepper, roasted on the gas directly (roasting in the oven works as well if you are concerned or want a simpler way) to make this raita that is now such a big hit at home that people coming for lunch or dinner specially call me, askig me to make this one.
I have also become very fond of adding a little tadka to my raitas, such a nice texture and flavour it adds. Almost makes it a complete dish in itself and not just an accompaniment.
