Raita Cucumber - A fast and easy dip for Summer.

Raita Cucumber is the perfect cool, and fresh, accompaniment to spicy meat dishes, veggie curries, and fish. It's also delicious as a dip for grilled veggies hot off the BBQ.

  • 6 cups of plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp. ginger powder
  • 1 tsp. roasted and ground cumin seeds
  • a little bit of asafoetida
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
  • a bunch of green coriander leaves
  • Salt and chili powder to taste

Mix all the above ingredients, except for the mustard seeds, asafoetida and coriander. In a pan, heat 2 tsps. of butter and put in asafoetida and mustard seeds. When the seeds stop popping season the Raita with them and serve it sprinkled with the coriander leaves.
