This is an awesome side-dish for Bisi bele bath. My sister's favourite Pachadi/ raita... Here is my mom's tomato raita recipe.
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 small capsicum/ bell pepper (or 1/2 of a big one), chopped
1 green chilli slit long
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp methi powder
1 tsp oil
curds/ yogurt - 2 to 3 cups
chopped coriander leaves (for garnishing)
salt to taste
hing 3 dashes
Add oil in a kadai, splutter mustard seeds. Add the green chilli, tomatoes and capsicum. Sprinkle salt, hing. Saute well till tomatoes are soft.
Stir in the methi powder and saute for another minute.
Allow it to cool.
Now add curds and mix well. add more salt if required.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
Tastes great with any spicy rice dish.
Note: If you dont have methi powder, just add 1/4 tsp of methi seeds along with mustard seeds.
