BM # 72
Week: 4, Day 3
Theme: Special Theme
Coming to the last day under special recipes Here is a Raita which is really unique. We normally do not add garlic to curd , but here garlic is used to give that amazing , slightly pungent flavor to the yogurt. I also used some finely chopped walnuts and they gave such a wonderful crunch and taste to it. Cumin seed powder and red chilly powder are mandatory spices for raita as, no raita would be complete without them.Serve this special Hyderabadi Raita with Hyderabadi Biryani and you will not need any side dish.
1 cup whisked yogurt
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 tsp red chilly powder
1-4 tsp roasted cumin seed powder
Pinch black salt
Finely chopped walnuts
Salt to taste
Add the minced garlic to the whisked yogurt.
Add the dry spices and mix well.
Heat a tsp of oil, add finely chopped garlic, temper the raita with it.
