Raita , is an Indian version of yogurt dip. It can be made with many variations by adding different veggies & spices either raw or cooked.

Carrot Raita is the easiest of all the raitas I could think of at any moment. Just grate, add and mix…its that easy which is ready in maximum of 2 mins.

This raita /dip can be served with any rice,chips, roti,naan bread too.
