Summary

Once you know how to make basic Raita, you can create variety of colorful and flavorful Raitas.

This dish is great for a Fall salad. As  all Raitas are made with Yogurt base,  they are not Vegan dishes.

In this dish the carrots are slightly sauted with flavoring spices.Very easy and quick dish. I like to work   with fruits and vegetables and mix them so the flavor and colors add appeal to the dish. Kids love it too.
