Banana Coconut Raita

Yields6 Servings

This yogurt-based Indian side dish is not only delish ... it's healthy to boot with prebiotic banana fiber- and mult-nutrient mustard seeds.

 2 tbsp butter or ghee
 1 tsp mustard seeds
 ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
 ½ cup flaked unsweetened coconut
 2 ripe bananas, mashed
 ½ tsp salt
 1 tsp sugar
 2 cups coconut yogurt, regular or drained for a thicker product

Heat the butter or ghee in a medium-size, heavy-bottomed saucepan (I use a medium-sized non-stick All-Clad skillet) and add the mustard seeds.


Stir the seeds over medium heat a minute or two until they start to pop, then stir in the cayenne.


After another minute, add the coconut and bananas; remove from the heat and stir quickly.


Add the remaining ingredients, beat together lightly with a fork, and chill for several hours before serving
