Ingredients needed Radish Beetroot Raita – Radish Beetroot Dip –

You’ll need a cutting board, a sharp knife, a grater, a measuring cup, a bowl and a mixing spoon. Other than that you will need plain yogurt, daikon radish (available in Asian or Indian grocery stores), beetroot, walnuts, green chilies, salt, yogurt, cilantro, and cumin seeds. Make sure that you use a thick plain yogurt and not a watery type or it will make your raita runny. 

First, I roasted the cumin seeds. Along with the cumin seeds, I toasted and chopped walnuts.

Radish Raita –

First, let’s roast the walnuts, over medium heat for 2 to 5 minutes, until golden. They can brown quickly so watch them. Once golden and fragrant transfer them to a bowl and set aside.

Second, roast the cumin seeds. Heat a small skillet or frying pan over high heat. Once the pan is hot add the cumin seeds without oil. Shaking the pan pretty much constantly—until the seeds darken slightly  about 1 minute. Make sure not to toast them too much or else they will taste bitter.

Further wash and peel your radish. Then, using a grater, grate the radish. You will slide the vegetable over the large holes on the shredding surface of a box grater or a plane grater, starting from the top of the grating surface and moving the radish to the bottom of the grater. As the vegetable you’re grating becomes smaller, it’s easy to shred skin. So, once the radish has been shredded down to a small piece, cut this remaining piece by hand into tiny strips. 

In a large bowl add yogurt and Whisk it. Then add in salt, and radish. Finally add in serrano peppers, toasted walnuts and 1 and 1/2 tsp cumin seeds. And mix well. Top off with cilantro and set aside.

Beet Raita –

Whisk yogurt in another bowl. Then add in salt, and radish. Finally add in serrano peppers,  toasted walnuts, and  1/2 tsp cumin seeds. And mix well. Top off with cilantro and set aside.

Finally transfer the radish raita on one side in a bowl and the beet raita in the same bowl on another side.

Storing Radish Beetroot Raita – Radish Beetroot Dip

Store any raita in a covered container in the fridge for up to 3 days. After that, it may get runny and it will lose its flavor.
