Beetroot Raita is a creamy refreshing raita made with yoghurt, beetroot and spices.
This raita is a delicious spin on the other raitas like Boodi Raita, Vegetable Raita, Burani Raita and so on. Beetroot adds an earthy sweet flavour to the raita and is packed with nutrients. I love the subtle pink colour of this raita and the freshness pomegranate adds to each bite.
I prefer to use raw grated beetroot for this raita as it adds slight crunch too in each bite. However, it works well with boiled beetroot too.
Beetroot is a root vegetable also known as red beet, table beet, garden beet or chakundar. It is a great source of potassium, dietary fiber, magnesium, vitamin C, iron, folate, manganese, and vitamin B6, and many more other vitamins and nutrients.
