Makhana Raita/Lotus seeds Yogurt

All makhana recipes are my family treasured recipes which I learnt from my mother. Actually she puts tadka in yogurt by heating some oil in a pan and splutter cumin seeds and curry leaves. But here just to avoid oil I used roasted cumin seeds and added all spices. Both ways are correct .Can make in either way.

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup roasted and coarsely grinded Makhana
  2. 2 cups yoghurt
  3. 1/2 tsp black salt
  4. 1/2 tsp black pepper
  5. 1/2 tsp chaat masala
  6. 1/2 tsp garam masala
  7. 1 tsp roasted cumin seeds
  8. 1/4 tsp chopped ginger
  9. 1/4 tsp chopped green chili
  10. Few coriander leaves

Few pomegranate seeds( optional)

Method

  1. Add all masalas except coriander leaves,pomegranate seeds and makhana.
  2. Beat the yogurt.
  3. After mixing yogurt with spices add makhane to the beaten yogurt and fold them in.
  4. Garnish with coriander leaves and pomegranate seeds.
    Serve with any indian meal.
    Perfect yogurt for fasting.
