Every person has some strengths and some weaknesses. And I am no exception to this rule. One of my negative characters is that I always plan last minute even if I have ample time at my disposal.
For taking part in Blogging Marathon #64, I dilly-dallied in sending my entry. By the time I sent my entry, whatever themes I wanted to work upon were already selected by others. Having no other option, I settled for other themes. But it got slipped out of my mind and I prepared the recipes for the theme that I had earlier applied for. According to me, for first week I was to work on theme brunch ideas for kids whereas in reality, it is 3 ingredient recipe. By chance it came to my notice when I was going through the list of participants of BM #64. I felt like somebody had pulled the rug from under my feet. So, my next task was to decide instantly what could be made under 3 ingredient recipes.
These days, the sun is showing no mercy on us and it’s scorching heat over here in my part of the world i.e. in India. So I decided upon making something that is cooling, easy and quick. What could be the better option on a hot day than a cool yogurt based dish??? For quite some time, I was thinking of posting the recipe of banana raita that is very close to my heart. My childhood memories are associated with it. During summer vacations we used to go to my tayaji’s (paternal uncle) house in Delhi. My tayiji is a great cook. She used to make some thing different everyday. As from my childhood, I’m very fond of cooking, so I used to trail her like a shadow in the hopes of learning her cooking secrets. Once she served us banana raita and I became a fan of it. Just the mention of it makes me drool, though it’s a commonly made raita in my family. Why do I make it so regularly.. there is a reason behind it. My daughter being a fussy eater, doesn’t like curd. As she is in the growing age, so to make her eat curd, I make this raita which she is as fond of as I am.
This week my theme of Blogging Marathon #64 is 3 ingredient dish, so this I consider as an appropriate option. It uses only 3 ingredients excluding sugar and salt.
There you go with the recipe….
|Banana||1, cut into rounds
|Roasted cumin powder||¼ teaspoon|
|Salt/Rock salt /Sendha Namak||¼ teaspoon|
- Take curd in a bowl. Add sugar and black salt to the curd.
- Whisk curd well so that it become smooth and creamy.
- Add banana pieces to the curd and mix..
- Sprinkle roasted cumin powder
- Chill the raita in the refrigerator before serving.
- You can add pepper powder/red chili powder or coriander leaves as per your liking. It tastes good as such also.
- You can also add khatti meethi imli chutney.
- You can increase or decrease sweetness acc. to your taste.
