Inji Thayir or the ginger and green chilly raita is a delicious and healthy accompaniment to have whether it is on the Sadya leaf or otherwise. Here is a super easy recipe to make the same.
Raita’s are my top favorite food! Partly because I am not too fond of plain curd or yoghurt snd partly because I think they bring much needed easy variety to a meal. This ginger and green chilly raita or Inji Thayir was a surprise discovery last year and now it has been a regular at home from a while.
I tasted this first time at Chitra’s house last Onam. She and her mom had made this as one of the items in the detailed Onam Sadya they had made. And what stuck me the most was the simplicity of this dish. Three ingredients (not counting salt) and probably 5 minutes to put it together. And the result a stellar raita that has the capability of elevating any meal and not just the Onam Sadya.
This probably will be the last of the Onam posts of this year, I had planned to end it with a payasam but I seemed to have erased all pictures of it from my phone by mistake. And the weather currently is just motivating me to cook. All I want to do is lie in bed and EAT. May be have a book in my hand, a cup of coffee or a glass of rum but just too lazy to cook. Yes there I said it!
Do try this and when you do share a picture with me. Tag #sinamon on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. I would love to hear from you. The good things, the brick bats and if you want any clarifications about the recipe.
