Beetroot raita is Indian raita made with fresh beetroot, curd and a few spices.

It has a mildly sweet and tangy flavour. Its pink colour adds a different colour to our plate.

Beetroot is a nutritious vegetable and is readily available in the market.

I have shown the two ways of making it simple and the tadka method. Both of the raita taste delicious. It is up to your preferences.

I make my own curd daily at home. Read how to make curd at home.

It has various health benefits like increased stamina, lowering blood pressure, boosting immunity etc. It contains carbs, potassium, iron, vitamin C, fiber etc.
