Cucumber Raita

#7 Amma's Recipe

I love raitas. There was a time I had onion raita with absolutely everything I ate. Then I started adding chopped cucumbers, carrots and coriander to the raita. And Then came the onions with salt & lemon sans the yogurt. And now I going crazy over this famous CUCUMBER cooling and refreshing for this hot hot summer. I know many of you love this!

Serves 4

You Will Need:

2 Cucumbers
200 ml Thick Yogurt
1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
Salt to Taste

For Tempering:

1/2 tsp Oil

1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
2 Green Chilies, Finely Chopped
Few Curry Leaves
1 tbsp of Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves

The Cooking:

Skin and grate the cucumber and tightly squeeze the water. Add the thick curd and mix in the cumin powder & salt. Heat oil in a kadai and crackle the mustard seeds. Add the green chilies, curry leaves and coriander leaves. Saute few secs and pour this into the cucumber.

Mix well and serve chilled!
