Peas Raitha

Peas Raitha/Salad
My son loved this as it had all his favourite ingredients: peas,yogurt,honey!! I had some more plain Greek Yogurt from Oikos and thought I'd make this salad.Again,just like the cumin+yogurt dip,you can make it either sweet(add honey) or have it like the regular raitha with salt.
Ingredients:
  • Yogurt: 1 cup
  • Peas: 1 cup steamed
  • Zeera/Cumin seeds: 2 teaspoon (roast and pound when cool)
  • Honey:2 teaspoon OR salt: to taste
  • Mint leaves/Cilantro: 1teaspoon(chopped fine)
Method:
  1. First,let the peas cool down to room temperature.
  2. Then mix all the ingredients together.
  3. Let it chill in the fridge for atleast half-an-hour.
  4. Garnish with chopped cilantro/mint leaves and serve.
