Raita is a simple, yogurt-based condiment that is traditionally paired with spicy Indian food to cool the palate. It’s fantastic served with curry, tandoori or even kebab. Or have it as a dip for warm naan. Although store-bought yogurt will do fine, take your raita to the next level and make your own yogurt. But no pressure. Just a little.
About half a cup of plain yogurt (not Greek)
About half a cup of Cucumber, seeded and chopped
About 1 tablespoon minced red onion
fresh cilantro, chopped
fresh mint, chopped
A bit of lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper
Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl. Every ingredient after the red onion is really to taste. You can also add some chopped dill if you have it. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Enjoy.
