Fijian Raita

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by awalde

This dish was originally designed to cool down very hot curries, but then adventurous cooks had the idea to spice it up! Go figure. Serve this as a condiment. Found online and posted for ZWT7

This is a nice change of raita from the usual of just cucumber and it is pretty! I did tone down the heat for us which worked well using some cayenne pepper powder to taste instead of the fresh pepper. I used Balkan (thick) yogurt, English cucumber with the peel for colour serving it like awalde's photo, no optional red bell pepper, a small garlic clove, sea salt and the cumin powder. Had with an Indian meal. I may make this again. Made for *** RAMADAN RECIPE TAG - 2011 ***
