A great side dish which goes with all sorts of indian food.


  1. Dice the cucumbers, onion and tomato and toss them all together in a large bowl.
  2. Mix in the yogurt, starting with half a cup, and add more if necessary. Salt it to your liking and let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to get the best flavour out of your Raita.

Love the idea of adding tomato to raita. Served with Uncle Bill's Barbecue Tandoori Chicken (Uncle Bill's Barbecue Tandoori Chicken), but this would be great as a complement to any curry. I have 2 family members who don't like raw onion, so I substituted chopped scallions (green stalks only).

This is different to the raitas I usually make so I was keen to try it. I don't recall ever adding tomato to a raita before, but it worked really well. This is a pleasant fresh tasting dish, which would also work well as a side dish to other cuisines.
