Cucumber Raita (Yogurt)

Raita is my favorite condiment, specially when accompanied with Aloo ka parantha (Indian stuffed bread). It is easy to make, refreshing, and healthy if you leave out sour cream.

Here is the recipe.

Ingredients
1. 375g of no fat Plain yogurt
2. 2 tablespoons sour cream
3. 1 teaspoon rock salt (kala namak)
4. 1/2 teaspoon table salt
5. 1/4 teaspoon red chili powder
6. 2 teaspoons cumin powder
7. 1/2 cucumber, shredded.


Instructions
Put everything together and mix with a beater. Serve chilled.

Believe me it tastes grrreat!!

Thanks, MizzJ. I wasn't quite satisfied with the previous pic. It didn't do justice to the taste. I took another click my raita. Hopefully this one looks better.
