This post is for Blogging Marathon 41 under the theme "Pick one ingredient". My ingredient for this week is Beetroot. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 40 here.
For this weeks marathon the theme is "one ingredient" and beetroot is the ingredient I chose. You will find three posts with beetroot and the first post is a raita. Raita | Pachadi, a very common condiment in Indian cuisine is a best coolant for summer heat. No biriyani or pilaf is served without this chilling side. Most spiciest of dishes can be balanced with this as a side. There are so many varieties of raita and you can add most of the veggies to prepare this. Incorporating this in your diet on a regular basis, especially in summer, has a chilling effect on your body. It helps to reduce the body heat and gives us an instant relief.
