Capsicum carrot raita recipe

vegetable based raita
Capsicum carrot raita recipe - This is a vegetable based raita made with capsicum and carrot. Whenever  I make pulao,  spicy curry or paratha, I make it a point to prepare raita to balance the spiciness in the food.  We enjoyed this  raita with soya beans pulao and paneer gobi paratha. Consuming vegetables in the form of salad and raita provides essential nutrients, and fibers to our system.
