This is nice with the honey. I used Balkan (thick) yogurt, creamed honey which I melted to mix in, English cucumber which I did not seed just peeled, plus the rest, including the optional cumin on top. We enjoyed this with recipe#423545. I may make this raita again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl. It may be easier to warm the honey, as it is easier to blend with the other ingredients. Make sure the cucumber is drained well, otherwise your raita will be too watery. Mix well, and add to serving bowl.
  2. Sprinkle cumin over the top.
  3. Serve on top or on the side of your favorite Indian dish, or serve as a dipping sauce with naan bread.
