My Carrot Raita
Traditionally Raita includes cucumber but this version has a little more crunch with carrots and is delicious with a poppadum or two.


  • ½ tsp ground, toasted cumin
  • pinch chilli flakes
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 250mls natural yoghourt
  • 2 tbsp tamarind puree or the juice of 2 limes
  • 2 large organic carrots, coarsely grated
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint finely chopped
  • salt and freshly milled black pepper

  • Mix everything together apart from the carrots.
  • Taste to see if you are happy, adjust if necessary.
  • Pour over the carrots, mix well and add the mint, then cover.
  • If you can leave at room temperature for 1 hour all the better.
  • Remix and taste, season again if needed then serve with the curry.
