Outstanding! We all loved this recipe, made it as written and was not disappointed. I really enjoyed the fresh mint and ginger coming through the yoghurt. This makes a Perfect accompaniment to any Indian recipe. Thank you Aaliyah&Aaron's mum
Love the hint of mint coming through in this cool refreshing raita.
We peeled the cucumber, and left out the cumin seed for personal preference when making this dish. We also substituted tarragon for the mint. We let it sit in the fridge for about 3 hours then spooned it over grilled chicken breasts for lunch and it was great. The Raita melted over the steaks into a wonderful cream sauce, then we found ourselves with a forkful of meat and just dipping it into the sauce in the bowl. The flavor of this sauce is really good.
I have made this ahead of my Grand Indian Curry Banquet, which I am holding tomorrow! I tasted it today and it is SUBLIME - the ginger really adds that authentic Indian flavour to it! The toasted cumin seeds are also a wonderful finishing touch.....a great recipe and one which will now become my default Raita recipe from now! Thanks Aisha - I have come to expect only the best from you and your recipes, this did NOT disappoint me! Made for the Aussie Swap. FT:-)
Very good! I peeled and seeded the cucumber, and let it "weep" between paper towels before mixing it into the yoghurt, and threw in some fresh basil. Served over chana masala (chickpea curry) with naan bread.
