Raab is a very dilute drink made by cooking bajra in ghee and mixing it with yogurt.

Recipe Notes
  • The soup can be made a day before if needed for a party or event. Just add water when rehearing to balance the consistency.
  • Definitely do not skip out on the spicy flatbread, it pairs with the soup very well.
  • The vegetables should be fresh and crunchy, so add them at the end when the soup is ready.
  • You can use any store bought mixed pickles. I used Mother's Recipe Mixed Pickles.

    Can it be made vegan by excluding the yogurt and substituting with something else?

    • Nidhi Bothra says

      Hi! It’s the yogurt which enhances the flavor (with it’s tartness) and lends texture to the soup. You can substitute the yogurt with a vegan or soy yogurt instead. Just add some lime when you are serving it to add the tartness into the dish, but be careful not to add it while cooking otherwise it will curdle. I haven’t tried this before, but I’d love to know how it goes!
