It feels creamy and rich, but it equally light and refreshing, giving everyone a reason to love the Kaddu ka Raita. Red pumpkin is tempered and cooked till soft, mashed and mixed with curds, and finally garnished with coriander and crushed roasted peanuts. The roasted peanut garnish is actually the icing on the cake, as it gives the raita a tremendous boost in flavour, aroma and texture.
Radish is a vegetable that we tend to associate with parathas and subzis, and rarely with raitas . Even more so, you might never have thought of combining it with fruits to make a raita! Indeed, this is a very innovative raita, one of its kind! The mild spiciness of radish together with the tang of oranges, the sourness of grapes and the mellow sweetness of apples gives the raita a range of textures and flavours, which you will thoroughly enjoy. A dash of black salt and green chillies add to the peppy taste of the Mooli and Fruit Raita, making it a true tongue-tickler!
