Dhankar !!

Ok.. I really donot know why this name. But this is a kind of raitha and one of my favorite when my Mom makes it.


Urad dal - 2 Tbs
Thick Curd - 1/2 Cup
Green Chillies - 2
Asafotida - a pinch
Cumin seeds
Curry leaves
Coriander leaves

To Season: Oil & 1/2 Spn of Mustard seeds


1. Fry the urad dal for about 2 minutes and grind into smooth powder when cold.
2. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Cut the chillies into small pieces and add.
3. Season the mustard ina spoon of oil and add finally.

Raitha ready in minutes.

Note: You can also do a raw raitha without frying the urad dal but directly powdering it.
