Raita is an Indian condiment based on yogurt. It is not spicy at all, just very fresh and flavorful. From "Hands-Off Cooking" by Ann Martin Rolke.

Yummy, yummy, yummy! I liked that this raita could be enjoyed with Indian dishes, but also was great as a sandwich spread. So easy to make and I usually have all the ingredients. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.
- 1 1⁄2 cups plain yogurt
- 1⁄2 unpeeled cucumber (about 4 inches long)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill or 1⁄2 teaspoon dried dill
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
