Cucumber Raita

Cucumber Raita (खीरे का रायता) is a great cooling dish which goes with any fiery dish, or sometimes just acts as one of many ways to make plain yogurt exciting. Less often I have used this as part of dips as well. Cucumbers are extremely beneficial for general health and this is one of my ways to feed Cucumber to my family.

Notes

  • You can use finely chopped cucumber in place of grated cucumber. It is advised to grate cucumber only when you are planning to make raita same time. This is because grated cucumber if left for sometime, will release water.
  • You can add all the spices directly if you don’t want tempering. For doing so, dry roast asafoetida and cumin seeds for 2 minutes before adding them to the raita.
