Zucchini Raita

Did you know that all parts of zucchini are edible (flesh, seeds and peel)? Zucchini is low in calorie and high in dietary fiber, hence a great supplement to everyday meals, even if it’s in the form of a simple raita.


Curd – 2 and a half cups                          
Grated zucchini – 1 cup                     
Roasted jeera powder – 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1/4 tsp
Finely chopped green chili – 1 (optional)
Salt according to taste
