I am not a summer person, spring and winters is more me! 🙂 But then summers bring along some of the most awesome things to savour on, favourite being “Mango”, but for now I am talking of the other favourites. Raitas, salads, panna, mocktails, coolers, cold coffee, lassi etc. to name a few.
The heat is rising up and all we need is something super light and refreshing and what better than cucumber onion raita. So easy peasy to make and gets done in a jiffy. While the vegetable pulav gets cooked, I prepared this. ❤ Summer meal for the day sorted!
So here’s my way of making Cucumber Onion raita.
Serves : 4-5
3 cups fresh yogurt/curd
1 cup finely chopped cucumber
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
2/3 tsp salt (adjust as per taste)
1/4 tsp rock salt
1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder (jeera powder)
handful of coriander and mint leaves (washed and chopped)
Whisk the curd well and add chopped cucumber and onions.
Add salt, rock salt, roasted cumin powder. Stir well.
Lastly add chopped coriander and mint leaves, they add to the flavour and enhance the freshness.
That’s about it, raita is ready! So what are you going to have it with? For us today was vegetable pulav and maybe tomorrow it’ll be some sort of parantha! 😀
Use only fresh curd, not sour. I used fresh home set curd and it be creamy. If there’s too much water in the curd, strain it in a sieve.
