Red Cabbage Raita

I like the Red Cabbage for its color and health factors. It is rich in Vitamin C and a good source of dietary fiber.It's mainly used in salads and sandwiches.



I made a simple raita with the red cabbage. Before I go to the details of the recipe, I would like to share a Thought for the day....
 "When one door of happiness closes, another opens;
   but often we look so long at the closed door
   that we do not see the one which has opened for us "
    - Helen Keller

Now coming to the recipe, there isn't much to explain. Prepare like how you normally do for a raita. 

I chopped a small portion of the cabbage. Though it can be eaten raw, my son doesn't like the raw taste. So I slightly cooked in microwave for a minute or two. I didn't cook it further so as to retain its crunch. Now mix these with yogurt. Add the salt. I added some chopped green chillies. I skipped the tempering. You can splutter some mustard seeds,add  red chillies and curry leaves in oil and  then add to the raita.

Hope you will like this simple and healthy raita... :)
