Capsicum / Bell Pepper Raita


When my mom last visited us, she made this simple, tasty raita using green capsicum. I, however, am a big fan of the beautiful, vibrant colours of bell peppers (I mentioned them here too). So I spiced up the dish a little bit by adding all these lovely colours and some chaat masala.

Ingredients:
1 cup finely chopped capsicum (I used a combination of red, green and yellow).
2 to 3 tsp ghee / oil
1/2 tsp jeera (cumin) seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 cups yogurt (curd)
1/2 tsp chaat masala
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
Salt
Coriander leaves

Method:
Heat ghee /oil. Add jeera. When it splutters add turmeric powder and roast for a few seconds. Add chopped bell peppers and sauté for a few minutes till they become soft. Add salt to taste and mix.


Beat curd thoroughly with a fork or whisk. Add chaat masala, chilli powder and salt and mix well. Add the sautéed capsicum and mix. Garnish with coriander leaves.


Goes well with rice or chapatis.
