Notes

Tips & Variations:

  1. Adding milk to the yogurt helps it from turning sour.If you are using fresh yogurt then skip it.
  2. You have to saute or steam broccoli ,raw broccoli doesn't taste great with this raita.You can also add some grated carrots in this recipe.
  3. You can also add finely chopped mint(pudina) or coriander leaves.
  4. If the raita becomes too thick add more milk.
  5. To Make it Keto or Low Carb friendly use Greek Yogurt
