BM #112 Week 3 day 1 - 

This week it will be all about Raithas. With the ongoing/approaching hot months, I am sure all of us can indulge in some coolants and enjoy.

Here I have made a very popular Gujarati Raita with Beets. A hint of ginger and green chilies balance the sweetness of the beets pretty well . I had made it as part of a Gujarati meal which will be showcased separately in a few months.
