I'm always on a hunt to find some healthy food for the mid - day hunger pangs ;) . Cucumber slices dusted with chutney podi or pudina podi or any other podi on hand , is my regular solution.
But having run out of this regular fix , I found mooli instead .
So be it ! Necessity is the mother of all inventions , it is said. I conjured up this raitha with the mooli & trust me , it was quite satisfying & tasty too !
I have to mention that I used low fat curds & olive oil for tempering.
I guess , a similar preparation with grated carrot or cucumber would be good as well.
Any other quick - fix solutions for this condition are most welcome !
White radish - 1, grated
Curds - 4 tbsps, whipped lightly
Green chillies - 2 , finely chopped
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Jeera powder - 1/2 tsp
For the tempering -
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard, Jeera , curry leaves
Coriander - 1 tsp , for garnishing.
Mix the grated radish with all the ingredients .
Temper the raitha & garnish with coriander .
Serve with paratas, Rotis etc.
