Cucumber Raita

  • 2 cups thick plain Yogurt (make sure its not sour. I use fat free Greek yogurt for more protein)
  • 1 large cucumber (half grated and half chopped)
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp roasted cumin powder (I sometimes use ground cumin-coriander powder with good results)
  • Few sprigs of cilantro
  • Salt to taste ( try the black salt available in Indian stores. More authentic)
  • Chilli powder/ground pepper for garnish (optional)
