Brown bread Raita
An excellent side dish with Pulao / Biryani / Rice / Rotis …
You will need
3 slices of Brown / whole wheat bread, cut off the edges of bread slices with a warm knife and then cut into ½ - inch square or triangular pieces. Shallow fry (without oil) in a non stick pan until golden color.
For dahi (curd / yogurt):
200 ml medium thick curd, blend well
½ teaspoon coriander powder (dhania)
½ teaspoon jeera (cumin seed) powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon red chilli powder
2 pinches chaat masala powder
1 teaspoon chopped coriander leaves
In a blender or Tupperware quick shaker, blend curd with coriander powder, cumin seed powder, salt and red chilli powder.
Transfer this blended spiced curd in a serving bowl and gently arrange shallow fried bread pieces ( the bread pieces are to be added only just before consuming - just like bread croutons which are added to soup; else they may become too soft). Sprinkle chaat masala powder / seasoning of your liking - tamarind chutney etc - and decorate with chopped coriander leaves.
