We had this as an accompaniment to a Chicken curry and it was great. Cooled our mouths off wonderfully. I do like a bit of cumin in my raita so I added a tsp. wonderful recipe!
I made this last night. I have zero experience with raita. I used one jalapeno. Our grocery store doesn't carry a wide selection of peppers. I was worried that my 9 year old would not be able to handle the one chili but he loved this stuff. In fact, he wanted to take the leftovers for lunch. I used Greek low-fat yogurt- something that I haven't used before. I think that I may have to make a double batch this weekend.
Auntie Sue, I have been thinking of you since y'day and I was desperate to try out one of your recipes! I made this to serve alongside Spicy Indian Dahl(recipe no. 63075) and it went very well. I had it with this dahl and bread and later with dal and rice. It was really good. I did add a dash of red chilli powder(ground) and a dash of black pepper powder, as well as 1 tsp. of cumin(freshly powdered). I used 1/2 tsp. salt and 2 green chillies. To be honest, I omitted steps 1 and 2. I had to prepare this on the spur of the moment and I just had to fix this quickly. So, I started off directly with step 3. I'll be making this again sometime soon this summer. Thanks again, Auntie Sue, for a good and very easy to fix recipe!
I prepared the cucumber raita today to go along with the spicy mutton roast and basmati rice, and it tied the meal together very nicely. In fact we loved the recipe so much that I cannot imagine making cucumber raita any other way. Thank you Sue, you are great!
YUM. I was looking for a raita that had cilantro and not mint as an ingredient. Perfect to cool down any hot & spicy curry dish! I used 2% Greek yogurt, minced serrano chili pepper. I served with Goan Beef Curry with Vinegar: Beef Vindaloo, by Aasrti Sequeria. Thanks Sue Lau! Just perfect!
A nice cool accompaniment to an Indian meal
Very nice raita to serve with a curry dish.
