The Indians know a thing or two when it comes to making condiments. Some of their condiments like raita are fat free and accent dishes unlike North American condiments that mask the flavor of food. Don’t get me wrong, this is not to say that I do not like a slab of vegan mayo on my sandwich or ketchup with my fries. I just wish that there were more healthy options out there.
Raita compliments many curries, especially masala based ones. Raita can be used to cool down spicy curries and tastes great on potatoes or by itself with some naan.
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) plain yogurt
1/2 cup (125 ml) grated carrots
1/2 tsp (3 ml) salt
1/2 tsp (3 ml) ground cumin
1. Grate the carrots.
2. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and enjoy.
