Carrot and Raisins Raitha

Raitha / Raita is an Indian dip / accompaniment made with yogurt. Raitha is served along with biryani / pilaff / flavored rice and hot curries. I usually make red onion raitha to serve with pilaff, but kids don't eat red onion raitha since it has raw onions. This carrot and raisins raitha is kids friendly. Carrots give a nice crunch and raisins add sweetness. I did not add any chillies since I was serving this for my kids. However you can add green chillies according to your taste.

Yield : 2 servings


  • 1 finely grated carrot
  • 15 raisins
  • 2/3 cup of plain yogurt / curd
  • a  big pinch of salt
  • a pinch of roasted cumin powder
  • a pinch of granulated white sugar
  • chopped cilantro leaves for garnish


1. Soak raisins in hot water for 10 minutes until they plum up
2. Add yogurt in a bowl and whisk it until it is smooth
3. Add salt, cumin powder, sugar and using a spoon mix it with curd
4. Now add 3/4 of the quantity of grated carrots, soaked raisins into the yogurt and fold gently
5. Transfer the yogurt to the serving bowl. Top it off with rest of the grated carrots. Sprinkle cilantro leaves on top and serve
