Banana Raita (Kele ka raita)

Jump to Recipe

Our meals are never complete if we do not have raita, pickles or papads as  our side dishes. Raita’s get made with whatever is in my fridge – cucumber, apples and carrots, carrots and mint, pomegranates, lemon cucumber raita and the most popular gujarati raita – banana raita (kele ka raita).

Banana raita goes really well with certain spicy dishes as its sweet and soothing. As bananas can discolour, we usually make this raita just before we are going to serve our meal.

Ingredients

• 2 cups of Greek style yogurt (Vegans can use soya yogurt)
• 1 banana chopped into small cubes
• 1 clove of fresh garlic (minced using a garlic press)
• 2 fresh green chilies finely chopped plus one for garnishing
• ½ tsp. salt
• ½ tsp ground black pepper
• 2 heaped tsp English mustard (you can use a quarter teaspoon ground mustard powder instead)
• small bunch of coriander
•  1 tsp flaked chilies or green chilies for garnishing.

Method:

  1.  Chop the banana into small cubes.  Add the garlic,salt and pepper, some green chilies and some coriander.  Next add the English mustard.  Whisk the Greek yogurt and add it to the bowl.  Mix well.
  2. Garnish with a few green chilies serve.
