Capsicum Raita | Bellpepper Raita

Capsicum Raita, a simple and delicious side dish made  from curd and bell pepper/capsicum. In Tamilnadu, onion raita is quite a staple raita and it's widely served as a side dish for biryaniparotta and chapathi both in restaurants and in houses. Also, in South Tamilnadu and in Kerala, we're making "Thayir pachadi" with a lot of country vegetables like ash gourd,  cucumber and okra  which is somewhat similar to raita. 
Coming to today's recipe, here i have used a combination of yellow and orange capsicum, but you can use a single  color or any of your favorite colors. If you like capsicum flavor, then you must give this raita a try, it's simply awesome and tastes great as a side dish for all types of rotis ! Now let's check out the recipe.
