Beetroot Potato Pomegranate Raita | Beetroot Raita, worth a try

The combination of vegetables and fruits which are red in color I find them very fascinating. We love using boiled beets for making salad along with cucumber, carrots, pomegranate, radish and onions.

A dash of chat masala and drizzle of lime makes simple salad irresistible. However, adding grated beets to curd is a regular thing at my place, I wanted to try something different this time.

The inspiration behind this recipe is South Indian style Beetroot pachadi. With many changes I have modified the recipe by adding boiled potatoes and pomegranate to suit to our taste. And I must tell you this recipe is for keeps and worth trying.
