Capsicum Rhaita

Capsicum Rhaita has definitely got an unique taste. We can use all colors of capsicum. But I find that the red capsicum has got more flavor than yellow or green. Here goes the recipe.


One heartful of love, peaceful mind, & willingness to cook are the key ingredients to make your food extra special!

1. Red Capsicum - 1 large
2. Salt - as required
3. Yogurt - as required for rhaita
4. Ghee/oil - 1tsp
5. Coriander leaves - few


1. De-seed & cut the capsicum into medium size pieces.
2. Take a frypan, add oil when the pan is warm; add the capsicum & sauté until the capsicum are done well.
3. Remove from stove & let it cool.
4. Take the capsicum, salt, and coriander leaves in the blender; grind into a fine paste; add 1/2 of the yogurt while grinding.
5. Blend the capsicum purée to the remaining yogurt; taste & adjust salt if required.

Capsicum rhaita is ready to be served for any variety of pulav rice.

Handy hints:
1. Add a pinch of chilli powder to give a spicy punch to the rhaita.
2. You can also add amchur powder/chat masala to create tangy punch in the rhaita.

Do try it out & post your comments.
