‘As cool as a cucumber!!’ I had read this line when I was in school. Today I quote the same when ever I show my little one a cucumber. Cucumber ,watermelon …all these water loaded fruits surely give you the much needed coolness when feeling hot or while having a spicy dish.
Here are the ingredients for the coolest raita:
1 medium sized (long ones) cucumber(peeled and grated)
1 cup low /full fat smooth yoghurt
salt to taste
pinch of dried mint / 4-5 fresh mint leaves chopped(optional)
In a bowl ,mix the grated cucumber and yoghurt.
Add salt to taste and the mint. Mix well
