• 5 cups peanut yogurt
  • 1 cup grated beetroot
  • ½ tsp roasted cumin powder
  • chopped coriander leaves
  • black salt to taste
  • optional – 1 tbsp of lime juice


Whip the peanut yogurt in a blender to make it a smooth and pourable consistency. Mix in all the remaining ingredients to make a pretty pink raita, keeping some coriander aside for the garnish. Garnish with coriander on top. Add lime juice, if you require a sour taste in the yogurt as peanut yogurt is not naturally sour.


You can replace the beetroot with grated cucumber, steamed pumpkin, steamed potato or finely chopped tomatoes and onion.

Mint leaves can also be incorporated for added flavor.
