Raitha's are the most commenest dishes prepared in our places.They can be prepared out of any vegtables according to me.So here i have come up with a different kind of raitha.Its very crunchy and creamy at the same time.Looks great with the gorgeous colours of the fresh capsicum and tastes better because of the richness of peanuts and cococnut added to it.Well this is really a new creation Of mine and my family liked it a lot.
Red Capsicum - 3/4 cup
green capsicum- 3/4 cup
Coconut grates - 2 tsp
Green chillies - 2 large
Curds [thick] - 1 cup
Cashews - 2 large /whole
Cumin -1 tsp
Butter - 1 tsp
Pepper - 1/2 tsp
1.Chop up the capsicum into small squares .
2.Melt about a spoon full of butter in a pan add add cumin and wait till it splutters.
3.Then add the dices capsicum and season it with salt and pepper and allow it to get crispy.allow it to become black at the edges then remove it and keep it seperate.
4.Add coconut,green chillies and peanut and make a paste of it aand keep it aside.Beat up the thick curds a little bit season with salt and pinch of cumin and pepper ,then keep aside.
5.Just before serving mix all together and serve fresh.This keeps the capsicum fresh and crunchy.
6.Enjoy with rice or any parata's.
