The Worlds Of Raitha ~**

Raitha [ "kichadi" in south india ] is the simplest dish one can conjure in the Indian cuisine system. It is quick to make, well-known, healthy and traditional too. It hardly involves cooking  Even Children can be taught to make a good Raitha. Raitha is a good accompaniment to Rice and Dal or Curry / Chappathy/ Poori /Paratha  Dal and Curry It mixes raw vegetables [ Tomatoes, cucumber carrot, capsicum, onion (raw and cut small or grated ) ] mixed with good quality curds, salt and spiced gently. The Second variety involves boiling the vegetables [ potatoes, cabbage, peas, cauliflower (squashed or cut small)  ] and adding the curds, salt and spices. The third variety involves frying the concerned vegetables [ generally lady's finger and bitter gourd  ~ but even cabbage, cauliflower and peas may be fried and used ]  and mixing them  with curd, salt and spices.
