Capsicum Raita | Bell Pepper Raita | North Indian Raita Recipes | Raita for Biryani | Easy Raita Recipes

how to make capsicum raita

As I mentioned in my Cucumber Lassi, I tasted Capsicum Raita recipe also in the same Party. I loved the raita because of the capsicum crunchiness, it's simplicity and it's taste. I tried this on the next Saturday itself and paired it with Sweet corn Pulao. Though I liked the combination my mom complained raita could have been better with more spicier dishes like chicken Biryani or egg Briyani. Will try this Capsicum Raita again with spicy meal.
