Cucumber raita..


Hello  friends! How have you all been? Today I got another simple and easy and quick dish for you all. I have made easy cucumber raita with just few ingredients and you are free to modify it as per your liking. It goes well with pulaos and biryanis and plus in the hot weather it just acts as cooling agent. Try it and I  am sure you would love it.

Ingredients:
peeled and grated cucumber
curd or yoghurt blended
salt to taste
1tsp of sugar
1tsp red chilli powder
1tsp cumin powder

Method:

Blend yoghurt/curd and add salt and sugar. Add water to get required consistency for raita. Make sure its not watery raita. Add grated cucumber mix well. Finally add chilli powder and cumin powder.

Garnish it with coriander leaves or do as I did in the pic. Serve chilled.

I havent given measurement of cucumber and curd. It would be as required. Enjoy and lets hear your lovely comments.
