Delicious!! I used powdered cumin(didn't roast or toast it) instead of roasted cumin seeds because that's what I had on hand. I used Fage Greek yogurt and it wasn't necessary to drain it because it's so thick and yummy to start with.

A great addition for a hot curry! matched a hot and spicy pork vindaloo perfectly. Made a couple of hours in advance and garnished just before serving. perfect. Thanks for posting

Just love the toasted cumin in this raita. I only drained my yogurt for about 1/2 hour as we like our raita creamy. DH loved this too. Thank you for sharing.

So very good Jan and easy to make. Served this with Chicken Tikka Masala and was a nice cooling side to serve with it. I made this up about 2 hours in advance and left in the fridge and the flavors all melded nicely. Also added 1/4 cup thinly sliced onion and celery and it turned out great. I did drain the yogurt for 24 hours prior to using as I LOVE Greek yogurt and it gives even low fat yogurt a nice creamy texture. We all enjoyed this very much and will be making again.

Very tasty. I confess i didn't have whole cumin seeds so i *very carefully* toasted up some ground cumin in a nonstick skillet, which seemed to work ok.

Loved this especially the addition of the crushed cumin seeds. Gave it a fantastic flavour. Went so well with our curries and roti. Rave reviews by all.

This is an excellent recipe. I always add a bit of finely chopped onion and chili powder to give it a kick. I've never found it necessary to beat the yoghurt, just mix everything together and chill.
