The ultimate companion to any curry, this cucumber raita is incredibly quick and cooling - a refreshingly perfect side dish.
Servings 2 people
- 1 cup Greek yogurt (other yog will work too)
- ½ cucumber (grated)
- ½ cup mint, fresh
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp lemon zest
Peel then grate the cucumber.
Place into a bowl and squeeze out excess water with your hands by pressing the grated cucumber towards the bowl rim. Pour away the unneeded water.
Now mix in the yoghurt. Chop the mint leaves and add along with the lemon zest and salt (only the zest, no lemon juice necessary).
This dip is obviously great with a naan and a curry. But it also goes very well with anything roasted - like potatoes or pumpkins. Superb!
