CUCUMBER YOGURT RAITA

CUCUMBER YOGURT RAITA

This yogurt cucumber raita is easy to make. It goes with so many dishes and depending on your mood can be adapted. My advise is that if you have a flavoursome curry, leave out the garlic and chillies. If you want this act as a dip or add flavour then add the chillies and garlic. Go easy on the garlic as raw garlic is strong. When I tell you this dish is simple I’m not lying, my 6 year old could make this……ok maybe not my 6 year old but my 9 year old for sure.
