Why this name for this raita?? Like the Triveni Sangam at Prayag, where Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati meet and their confluence takes place, in this raita too, three very important vegetables' confluence takes  place.
Beetroot, which has the colour of blood almost...increases blood level.
Carrot, consuming which Vitamin A pills can be removed from your dictionary.
 Tomatoes, replete with lycopene...
all these three have gone inside this raita. Also, like the strong undercurrents in the Triveni Sangam,  ginger, which is good for digestion,  and peanuts, high in protein have vied with each other to enter the raita.
If you have a bowl of raita, it is almost equivalent to a healthy salad or meal, whatever you may call.
