Capsicum Raita Recipe - Indian Raita Recipes:

Capsicum raita is the best accompaniment for variety chapathis and parathas. I prepared it for carrot chapathi. I thought of having carrot chapathi as such since it was tasty enough to have it without side dish. But my hubby asked me to prepare onion raita for it. When I opened the fridge to take the curry leaves, I saw the cute capsicum sitting in the side. I immediately got an idea to prepare capsicum raita instead of routine onion raita. I am a fan of capsicum and now for capsicum raita too. It is very easy to prepare and healthy raita recipe. The flavor is so good and it has nice aroma. Capsicum raita is a must try raita recipe for all raita and capsicum lovers.
