Carrot Raita Recipe Step by Step

Whisked yogurt combined with shredded carrot, flavored with black salt, black pepper and a dash of sugar, is carrot raita. Carrot is an absolute winter delight. It is used in a number of recipes during winters. For example gajar halwa, a crowd pleaser and everyone’s favorite during the season, gajar matar ki sabji, gajar ki kanji, gobi gajar ka achaar and many more recipes. Low on fat and high in nutrients, the carrot is a very healthy root vegetable. I always look for ways to include carrot in our diet during winters. Well, making gajar ka halwa every time is not possible. Nor is it a very healthy recipe with the carrot. I love to eat carrots for my salad. But to take a break I often make carrot raita. Gajar ka raita can be served with pulao or biryani or any stuffed parathas.

Carrot Raita Ingredients:

Yogurt/Dahi: Fresh curd works best for the carrot raita. It is important to whisk it well. There should not be any lumps in the dahi. It should be thick and creamy. No water is added to make gajar raita.

Carrot: I have used red carrots to make carrot raita. You can use the ones available. Carrot needs to be peeled and shredded. The center part of the carrot should be discarded.

Seasoning: Black salt,kali mirchi, sugar are used to season gajar raita.

How to make Carrot Raita?

Perfect Gajar ka raita is the one that has the bite of the carrot with the creaminess of yogurt. It is perfectly seasoned. To make perfect Gajar ka raita the following points should be kept in mind:

  1. Use thick quality and fresh yogurt (dahi).
  2. Yogurt should be whisked until it is absolutely lump-free.
  3. Do not grate the carrots too thin.
  4. Mildly season the raita.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
