Cucumber Mint Raita

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by nomnom

Yet another recipe from Shawn Sidey and Celelbrity Kitchens. Refreshing accompaniment to any BBQ meal. I suggest adding yogurt a little at a time. Mine came out a little too "yougrt-y" Then again, I forgot to blot the cucumber - don't YOU forget like I did. Serves 5 adults generously

This was my first attempt at raita, and since I wasn't aware of what it should be like, please take my comments with a grain of salt. That being said, it was rather overloaded with vegetables, leaving only a coating of yogurt on them. The onion was particularly overpowering. The cucumber & mint mix was excellent; I will probably just add more yogurt and scale down the onion a bit the next time I make it.
