beet raita

Found this recipe online.  I steamed my beets the first time and got lots of positive feedback. Steamed or raw the recipe is a good one.  I also used more salt than the original recipe called for.

  • 1 c raw beets, peeled, grated
  • 2 T ghee
  • 1/2 t bl mustard seeds
  • 1/2 t cumin
  •  1/2 small green chili, chopped
  •  5 curry leaves
  • 1 pinch hing
  • 1 c yogurt
  •  1 T cilantro
  • salt, as desired

  1. In hot ghee,  fry the mustard seeds and cumin, chili and curry leaves. 
  2. When the mustard seeds stop popping, add the hing. Pour this into the yogurt. 
  3. Add the beets and cilantro and then salt. 
  4. Stir to mix nicely before offering to Krishna.
