We are used to having multiple dishes on our plate for almost every meal. Indian cuisine is popular for having variety in a single meal and we are only proud of it. Our roti, rice and curry is accompanied with pickle, chutney, curd and better still, raita. Now, even a small dish of raita can be made in different styles. Aloo, boondi, kheera, pineapple – there are many kinds of raita that we love to have as side dish with our everyday meals. Not that we are short of options but here is another variant that we can try – mooli raita.

With the winter season kicking in, mooli or radish will make a comeback in our kitchens and this is a great way to use this nutritious vegetable. Mooli raita or radish raita is a crunchy yogurt-based dish accentuated with aromatic spices and their striking flavours. Just like all other raitas, this one too is very quick and easy to prepare.
Radish is a nutrient-dense vegetable containing high amounts of fibre, potassium and antioxidants. It is also great for detoxification. Thus, this healthy raita will not only enhance your meal but will also provide you with many health benefits.
The recipe of mooli raita has been shared by popular food vlogger Alpa Modi through a recipe video posted on her YouTube channel ‘Something's Cooking With Alpa'.
