This is a good basic raita. I liked the fresh mint addition. I used Balkan (thick) yogurt and didn't drain it, English cucumber, plus the rest. I may make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If you have time, put the yogurt in a cheese cloth-lined colander and drain it in the refrigerator for at least one hour, preferably more. This will produce a thick yogurt, which when mixed with the cucumber will produce a thicker and less watery raita.
  2. Squeeze the grated cucumber very well between your fingers to drain it. This prevents the raita from being too watery. Mix the cucumber with the yogurt, cumin and mint. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
