CUCUMBER RAITA


Cool cucumber raita goes well with biriyanis and pulaos. We can have many variations by adding tomato pieces, chopped onion and coriander leaves.. or make a minty cucumber salad. I also like it with tadka / tempering of mustard seeds, asafoetida, curry leaves and dry red chillies.


Ingredients:
Cucumbers
Yogurt
Salt to taste
Sugar ... (optional)
Red chilli powder and bhuna jeera .. to garnish

Method:
1. Peel and grate the cucumbers.
2. Whisk the yogurt and add salt to taste and a little sugar if you like.
3. Mix the grated cucumber and garnish.
Enjoy different raitas with pulaos .. specially in summer.
