I love this refreshing raita. It is my tweaked version from Madhur Jaffrey's Indian Cooking book. I serve it with every Indian meal I make. I could make a summer meal of it by dipping in parantha bread or pita. Mmm... Use more cayenne if you like a little more heat - has a pleasant spicy/cool mix. For some reason when I enter that it needs a 5" cucumber, it wants to say 5 cucumbers. So... I've listed as 1 cucumber below.

I did make some amendments, but not to the spirit of the recipe. Used Greek yoghurt instead of standard yoghurt and sour cream; whole cumin seeds instead of ground; grated the cuke and drained most of the liquid. Didn't have any fresh mint so used a good pinch of dried, also added 1/2 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger. Let stand in the fridge for 2 hours and it was lovely with a rich curry.
