I just finished preparing my cucumber raita for tomorrow's dinner. I plan to accompany this with a special dish which I will feature tomorrow if time permits. This creamy dish is best served chilled and for me it goes very well with lamb kebabs or tandoori chicken. I will be refrigerating over night and serve it for dinner tomorrow.

1 cup plain Yoghurt
1/2 cup finely chopped CucumberCucumber

Salt to taste
1 tsp chopped Coriander
1/8 cup Cumin PowderCumin Powder

Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Red chili Powder to taste

1] Whisk the yoghurt with little water.
2] Add the cucumber.
3] Season with salt, pepper & cumin powder and mix well.
4] Sprinkle the red chili powder on top

Note: You may use some chopped coriander as garnishing.

I add a pinch of sugar (or more) while whisking the raita, and sometimes finely chopped spring onions as well, for some colour and crunch
