Raita is a nice accompaniment to spicy foods and also makes a great dipping sauce for prantha and naan. Me, I like to use it as a salad dressing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash the cucumber and shred it. You can use a food processor, or use a ginsu knife to chop the cuke sushi-fine, I prefer to use a veggie peeler because I have more control over the size of the pieces. Either way, the end result should have the same consistency as a storebought bag of shredded carrot.
  2. Blend the yogurt with the lemon juice and mix well. Dilute with water so the mixture is runny, about the same consistency as heavy cream.
  3. Stir the spices in well.
  4. Stir in the shredded cucumber.
