Dates Raita

Hello everyone!  It’s time for another easy-peasy recipe. Just the other day I made aloo parathas and I wanted a sweet and savory accompaniment with it. I noticed I had some dates and yogurt in the fridge and I immediately thought of this recipe.

Here is how it is made.

INGREDIENTS –

1 Cup fresh yogurt/curd
6-7 Dates deseeded and finely chopped
1 Tablespoon roasted and crushed peanuts
1 green chilli finely chopped
1/2 tablespoons chilli flakes
1/2 teaspoon roasted and crushed cumin
1/4 teaspoon black salt
1/4 teaspoon chat masala powder
Salt to taste
Chopped coriander for garnishing

Method

Mix all the ingredients together except dates. Taste the mixture once the flavours of chilli and salt should be strong, as sweetness of dates will balance everything. Put the mixture in fridge to cool. Add dates few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh coriander and serve.

You can enjoy this raita with stuffed parathas, biryani or just relish it like that in summer.
