Carrot Raita

Raita can add such a special touch to any Indian meal. This is particularly true when the meal is rich and or spicy. There are many variations to make Raita; for today, I am keeping it to something that's very simple and straightforward to make.

  • 2 cups thick plain Yogurt (I used fat free Greek yogurt)
  • 4 grated Carrots
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp roasted Cumin powder (bhuna jeera powder)
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ tsp Chilli powder/ground pepper for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon chaat masala
  1. Whisk yogurt with sugar very well and make sure that they are no lumps.
  2. Mix in it cumin powder, salt and chilli powder.
  3. Finally add in grated carrots. Mix well. Simple isn't it???
Serve with rice or any bread.


  1. i saw one recipe on net wherein boiled carrots were used which made my raita lumpy and mushy. i will now follow your steps

  2. orange color looks good.
