Notes:

  • Always use fresh and chilled yogurt for beetroot raita.

  • You can add Kashmiri red chili powder instead of green chilies.
  • Serve this raita chilled, so prepare it in advance and refrigerate it for at least 30-40 minutes.

Raita is best consumed when fresh. However, you can store this beetroot raita in the refrigerator for 24 hours. I will not recommend freezing this raita as yogurt will separate when defrost.
