Used a medium-sized whole cucumber(grated with the skin) in addition to all the other ingredients, except the salt and pepper. I omitted the pepper because the red chilli powder had already spiced it up and honestly, I feel, pepper was not required. It could be optional, IMHO. My mom preferred it without the onion though as such I would enjoy it with the same. It was very refreshing! Garnishing it with corriader leaves(chopped finely) would be an added bonus to its overall appearance, IMHO. Thanks for sharing, Mini!

A very nice raita mix. Don't be afraid to add the onion - it will still taste cool! I added some coriander too.

The BEST!!!!! I used full-fat yogurt because that is what we had and I finely grated half of the cucumber to really infuse the flavor. So good!
