carrot-capsicum raita
Capsicum when added in most of the food will give aromatic and flavourful.  We generally add capsicum|bell pepper in sambar, fried rice, paratha and some times in raita too. This south indian style of carrot capsicum thayir pachadi will be a perfect combo vatha kuzhambu or sambar rice too. Instead of making some fried accompaniments for sambar, this raita| thayir pachadi will be a perfect accompaniment, especially for this summer.
