After the wonderful evening time spent with friends, I gained some energy to post something in my blog and no power at home when I sat in front of my laptop. With the backup power from the laptop, I was able to search and select a simple raita recipe.
I thought this post might also helpful for those who live in (extreme) hot city like Chennai. It is better to include any one raita along with our daily food intake to cope with the heat and this time the raita is with cucumber.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 2 cups approximately
Cucumber - 1 no, large size, any variety
Plain Yogurt / Thick Curd - 1 to 2 cups
Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Black Salt - to taste
Red chilli powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Coriander Leaves - for garnishing
1) Remove the skin of cucumber and chop it into very small cubes. You can also grate the cucumber.
1) If you don't have black salt, substitute it with regular salt.
2) Use thick curd for best results.
3) Increase or decrease the curd quantity as per requirement.
