Last 10 days I had a bad time by having a swollen teeth which led me in pain.Now im fine and back to blogging.
Missed all of ur blogs.Since i couldnt able to do much of a cooking i was left with simple rice and some curry.My mom used to make this potato raita as a side with rasam or sambar which i totally love.I used to empty this without having any fuss and the first recipe i made before i even started cooking.
This is simple,easy and tasty raita which can be done in 5 mins.There is no need of any cooking here.Its easy and yummy.
Potatoes : 1 medium
Yogurt/Curd : 1 1/2 cups
Ginger : 1' inch grated
Green Chilli : 2 cut into small pieces
Coriander Leaves : for garnish
Salt : as taste.
For temper :
1.Coconut Oil : 1tbsp
2.Mustard Seeds : 1/2tsp
3.Cumin Seeds : 1tsp
4.Red Chilli : 1 or 2
4.Curry Leaves : 5 to 6
5.Hing : a pinch
Wash the potato and wrap a tissue paper and boil in microwave for 4 to 5 mins or till its done.
Take out and gently peel the skin and mash it with a back of spoon.
Mean while mix yogurt,ginger and green chilli.
Add the mashed potato.There should be small bits left. Add salt.
In a small pan,do the tempering by adding oil,seeds.When crackle add the red chilli,curry leaves and hing.
Pour over the raita and garnish with coriander leaves.
Do the tempering in coconut oil since it gives a nice flavor.
Go easy on green chilli as per your taste.
Do this raita 1 hour before serving since it helps flavors to ooze out from ginger and green chilli.
My mom used to serve this with rasam/sambar,a stir fry.
