Cucumber Raita

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

This is a very cooling sauce to go with spicy curries and other hot and piquant dishes. Try spooning it over your rice or dipping pieces of chapatis into it. Very good!

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!
