List of Ingredients:
- Curd-2 cups
- Lotus seeds-1 cup
- Ghee/Cooking Oil-1/2 tsp
- Salt – 1/2 tsp (or to taste)
- Black Salt-1/2 tsp
- Red Chilli Powder – 1/2 tsp (optional)
- Roasted Cumin Powder-1/2 tsp
- Sugar-1 tsp
- Roasted Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp (For garnishing)
- Green Chilly-1 (For Garnishing)
Steps To Prepare:
Whisk the curd so that no lumps are left in it and it attains a smooth texture. If the curd is extra thick, add two tablespoons of water also as some of the liquid is absorbed by the lotus seeds (so that the raita does not turn into a lump).
Add all the spices along with sugar and mix well.
Heat ghee in a pan and add lotus seeds to it. Stir it occasionally till they puff up, become crispy and slightly change the colour. Let the lotus seeds cool down.
Add the puffed lotus seeds to the spiced up curd. Mix gently. Place in refrigerator for 15-20 min or until it is to be served.
Garnish with some roasted cumin seeds and green chilli juliennes. Enjoy!!
