Popular in India, a raita is a salad made with yogurt and chopped vegetables, such as the cucumber used here. It provides a wonderfully cooling contrast to spicy food. Try it with our Tamarind Curry Chicken with Vegetables.

Ingredients:

  • 1 seedless cucumber, peeled and grated
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. lightly toasted cumin seeds
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

Place the grated cucumber between several layers of paper towels and press gently to absorb excess moisture. Transfer the cucumber to a bowl. Add the yogurt, cilantro, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper and stir until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Makes 3 cups.
