5 minute Beet Jeera Raita

One thing I love to eat during Summer months is Raita. If you are like me and love jeera or cumin with many things then you will love this Raita. The crunch from Beets and the smooth texture of yogurt topped with jeera tadka is just what you need in your life. My little one enjoyed this throughly and I am sure you will too
