Cucumber Raita

‘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

Serve chilled.
