Yogurt based dishes like raita, kadhi or beverages like chaas, lassi are usually made during the summer season. Because yogurt is cooling to you body.

But in my family, these all appear all year around whether winter or summer. I always have 2 containers of dahi in the fridge.

Spices used in this carrot raita recipe are usual that are used in almost every raita e.g. black salt, roasted cumin powder and chili powder. So the flavors are expected ones.

But addition of roasted, crushed peanuts give some texture and crunch to the raita. So it is best to mix in right before serving to retain its crunch.

Carrot is one of the healthy vegetables that you should include in your diet. But when it in raw form, it is more beneficial. Here raw grated carrot is used.
