Cool Cucumber Raita


Raita is one of the easiest side dishes to prepare and it goes well with spicy indian food since this dish is served cold.

Start by peeling the cucumbers. Halve it and deseed it.


Grate the cucumbers using a mandolin or food processor. Squeeze out extra moisture from the grated cucumbers using a kitchen towel or muslin cloth. 

Finely dice an onion and add it to the grated cucumber. Add in yogurt, lemon juice and salt to taste.




Keep refrigerated until it is being served.
