Courgette or Zucchini Raita !

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

In my family we all love different types of raitas. From basic fruit and nut raita to butternut squash raita !! Today I am posting a recipe which was created by me, I have made okra raita many times before, but this time I thought of making courgette raita. Few days ago we had BBQ dinner and we roasted some courgette with our tandoori paneer tikka..while we were having our dinner, I tasted courgette with one yogurt dip and I really liked it, so this dish took birth in my mind and today here I am with the recipe. My daughter wasn't sure about it, she said it was OK but me and my two boys loved it !!

  • 1 medium courgette ( 200 g )
  • 250 g thick beaten yogurt

  • 1/4 tsp chaat masala
  • pinch of black pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • Pinch of hing
