zucchini raita


this raita is a lovely change from the more common cucumber raita. madhur jaffrey, the recipe author, writes in eastern vegetarian cooking that she can eat it by the spoonful, all by herself. it can also be served warm, however, i've only tried it cold. madhur jaffrey calls this dish yogurt with courgettes, but i think it is a dish that we usually refer to as raita.
