Carrot Saasme

A saasme or raitha provides a much needed cooling effect to the palate. If you used eating a spicy meal it is always good to balance with a cooling raitha on the side. Today let’s learn a slightly different kind of saasme, carrot saasme. A special thing about this saasme is it has a nice sweet taste and can be used as a dip just by itself.
For carrot saasme you can grind coconut and little mustard seeds add then mix it with carrot puree and yogurt/curd. Here I have made it plain and just added some chatpata flavours in the form of amchur powder and jeera-pepper powder to balance things. This is very much a kid-friendly recipe and helps cool off some spicy flavours.

I had made carrot saasme along with piping hot carrot saaru. It is a very nice combination and I love paired dishes like these. The other ones I like are beetroot huLi and beetroot saasme, sorekayi kootu and sorekayi saasme! Try more tambli and raitha recipes from FOI, southebeejada tambli, pudina raitha etc.
