Beetroot Raita (Yoghurt)

Raita has already been spoken about at Vegetable Raita, Mango & Cucumber Yoghurt Salad and Cucumber Yoghurt Salad and beetroot of course we agree is healthy, full of vitamins and packed with powerful antioxidants. Still, as far as I know, beet can also increase blood pressure but recent findings state otherwise. Really, I'm not sure - should I believe or not because my half-half is quite cautious with beet except once a while. Anyway, lets just leave the topic aside and now, always as ever, nava-k like to bring you simplicity and no sweat dishes, this raita is one of it - pillowy steamed beet with tangy-minty-tad bit of spiciness yoghurt dressing.   

Ingredients (plus minus as per taste)
1 medium size beet - remove skin and slice
3 tbsp yoghurt
1 red chilli - sliced
1 green chilli - sliced
1 large red onion - sliced
1 tsp roasted or pan fried cumin seeds
1 tsp roasted or pan fried black mustard seeds
1 small bunch mint leaves - pluck the leaves out and sliced
Salt for taste

Steam beet till soft and tender.

Then arrange on a serving plate.
Mix or whisk the rest of the ingredients together.
Dollop, top-up or pour over the beet.
