I don’t really like the banana and curd combination too much, except for this recipe, where I love it. This is a treasured family recipe. My maternal grand mother’s mother in law gave it to her. She gave it to my mother, and my mother handed it down to me.

You’ve not tasted banana raita unless you’ve tasted this version. It’s so yummy. My middle sister ate it when she came home and said it was party worthy. Eat it with hot chapatis or parathas for lunch or dinner. So go ahead and make it for your loved ones and let me know in the comments, what they have to say!

Banana Raita

Serves 4-6


1 large or 1 1/2 medium sized banana chopped into small pieces

2 cups curd

1 teaspoon mustard powder

1 tablespoon freshly cut coriander

1 finely chopped chilly

Salt to taste


1 Beat the curd until smooth. If it is too thick add a little water to bring it to raita consistency.

2 Add the chopped banana, mustard powder, coriander, chilly and salt to taste and gently mix.

3 Keep in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. Serve cold.
