Komkommer banaan raita – cucumber banana raita (GF-SF)


This Indian salad is a delicious side dish with a hot vegetable curry or a simple dal with rice.
I eat it with my favorite khichadi. The nice thing about khichadi is that you can fill it with all kinds of veggies that you have left in your fridge, a carrot, a piece of cabbage, a potato, some green beans or peas, a stick of celery. When you make it with brown basmati rice, it’s a very healing dish for your belly. I eat it quiet often.

When you don’t eat dairy products you can leave out the yoghurt. The only thing that changes is the name: it will be kachumbar ;-)

Cucumber banana raita (2 pers)

1 ripe banana, in small dice
1 quart of cucumber, in small dice
1-2 tsp lemon juice
2-4 tbsp organic full fat yoghurt
2 tbsp raw peanuts, baked in some coconut oil, then roughly chopped
2 tbsp grated coconut
salt and pepper to taste
1-2 fresh green peppers, to your own taste, finely chopped
handful of fresh coriander, chopped
1 tbsp freshly ground golden flax seeds

Mix everything together, taste and add whatever is necessary. Let the tastes infuse for at least half an hour. So easy, so good!
