Gajar Ka Raita Recipe | How To Make Carrot Raita

Carrot raita or gajar ka raita is prepared by mixing grated carrot in curd with some spices. It is great to have with stuff parathas instead of simple curd. Though it can be a great accompaniment with rice recipes as well.
Carrot is a root vegetable and very rich in vitamins and mineral. A great antioxidant reduces heart problems and good for eyes. You can read more about carrots here. I use carrots in many different forms like in raita, paratha, mixing with other veggies, salads, soups, in dal/lentil and halwa/pudding.

    Mix well and gajar ka raita or carrot raita is ready to serve.
