Asparagus Raita

This raita is a very simple one – the spices are in the tadka rather than layering them as powders in the yoghurt. But my, it is delicious. The recipe was given to me by a Maharashtrian friend who was making it for a special event at their home.  I do love to make recipes that are given to me, as the chain of links formed by people and recipes is something special and important. In days gone, the passing of recipes from person to person was very important – no social media, few books, rare magazines. So word of mouth was the conduit, along with the Saturday paper Ladies Section and locally printed books compiled by Women’s groups.

Enjoy this raita, it is special for several reasons.

Similar recipes include: Pomegranate Raita, Carrot Pachadi, and Bhindi Raita.

LATE AUTUMN Vegetable Dishes for Healthy and Tasty Eating | Seasonal Cooking

As we pull our winter coats out of the wardrobe, ready for the cold, our vegetables in the kitchen shift to roots, pumpkins and the last of the tomatoes. We are not yet ready for the cold to come, yet we check our winter coats, rake the last of the leaves, and fill our freezers with whatever Summer produce that we can to see us through the winter. Strangely, days can still be beautiful, but they are obviously shorter.
