Yogurt with Cucumber and Mint (Kheere Ka Raita)

Top Review by eatrealfood

my raitas are usually crude concoctions where i just throw in diced cukes, cumin powder etc. today's version was much more patient and sophisticated:) after grating the cucumber, i drained it thoroughly and i used freshly ground roasted cumin (i was dying to try my new spice grinder and this was as good a chance as any). the result was a refreshing, fragrant concoction that made a great accompaniment to shrimp biryani.
