I have always been a sucker for wide assortment of colorful vegetables in my meals.
When I saw these Rainbow Carrots in my Farmer's market, I had to buy them. I used them in various recipes (instead of regular carrots) and this simple raita was one of them. It was so beautiful to look at that it got over before the meal itself . I tend to buy vegetables with their greens attached (if available of course) - like Beets
, carrots etc for 2 reasons. One, it helps that most of such greens are edible and nutritious and two, they help to ascertain the freshness of the vegetables. All that beautiful "polishing" and "waxing" can be very misleading in ascertaining the freshness of the produce and when an opportunity is available when you can actually check for freshness yourself, why not use it?
