    MariaBright's Note:

    This side-dish is great for hot Indian curries. Let your guests mix raita with their rice to cool the hot chilli taste. I was first introduced to this recipe by an online penpal of mine - Amy. However, I have adjusted the recipe to my taste.

      Was this ever good!! I used baby cucumbers, red onion in a lesser quantity, no garlic as I understood it was optional, grape tomatoes cut in quarters and squeezed out a bit, Balkan (thick) plain yogurt, sea salt and ground cumin out of preference which I still toasted in a dry frying pan until fragrant. I served it with tandoori chicken, saffron rice and a fresh salad. It was the best part! I liked the addition of tomatoes as I am used to just cucumber in raita. I will make this again!
