Cooking vegetable raita:
Step 1: prepare the tomatoes.
To prepare vegetable raita we need to peel the tomatoes. To do this, first rinse them, and then make a cross-shaped incision on the basis of each vegetable.
Pour water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Dip the previously prepared tomatoes in boiling water and hold them there for 30 seconds.
Using a slotted spoon, catch the tomatoes from boiling water and immediately transfer them to a bowl of cold water and ice. Wait for the vegetables to cool.
As a result of all these manipulations, you can easily remove the skin from vegetables only by pulling your fingers over the edge of the cross-shaped incision. Before you will be peeled tomatoes. Divide them into halves or quarters and remove the seeds with a spoon.
Carefully cut the remaining tomato pulp into small cubes. Set aside a few pieces to decorate the finished dish.
Step 2: prepare the cucumbers.
Rinse cucumbers thoroughly with running water and cut off their tips on both sides. Be sure to taste every vegetable, and suddenly the skin is bitter and needs to be cut. Cut the prepared vegetables into cubes, thin strips or slices, depending on whether you cook raita as a salad or a snack. I make a snack for rice cakes, so I cut vegetables very finely.
Step 3: prepare the radish.
Rinse the radishes as well, but you don’t need to peel them. Cut prepared vegetables in the same way as before sliced cucumber. Accordingly, I cut into small cubes.
Step 4: prepare the parsley.
Rinse parsley with warm water to make it more fragrant, then shake off excess moisture. Lay out the greens on a cutting board, cut off the stiff stems, we do not need them, but chop the leaves finely. And immediately leave a small pinch of chopped parsley for decoration.
Step 5: prepare the curry.
Heat a flat pan over high heat and fry the curry on it without adding oil.
Step 6: prepare the green onion feathers.
Rinse the green onion feathers with water, and then cut them into rings.
Step 7: preparing a gas station.
