Raita with Sprouts

You do get bored making the same Onion-Tomato Raita every day, don't you? Well, nothing wrong with it. It is just awesome and I have to agree nothing can beat the taste of that.

But every so often we do need a change. When one of those waves struck, I made this Masala Raita a long time ago. It was loved by one and all.

Now it was time to experiment with some sprouts. And I have to say, it was way too good. No one would believe something as healthy as this could be this tasty. Perfect accompaniment to some Parata or Biriyani.


Onions 1
Sprouts 1 cup
Yogurt 1.5 cups
Water 1/4 cup (or as needed)
Salt to taste

Red Chilli powder a few pinches while serving
Chaat Masala a few pinches while serving

Method of Preparation

1. Heat a little oil in a pan. Add the onions and saute for a minute.

2. Add the sprouts and saute for a couple more minutes.

3. Transfer to a bowl and let it cool.

4. Whisk the yogurt well. Add a little water if needed. Add some salt as well.

5. Add the yogurt to the sprout mix. Stir well.

6. Serve topped with some chilli powder and chaat masala.

Avant Garde Cookies are making a dish starting with the first letter of their name. So with R it is Raita!
