My Notes:

  • You can even grate the cucumber instead of chopping.But I personally prefer the chunky pieces as its nice crunchy :)
  • You can add pepper powder instead of red chilli powder too.
  • Always whisk the curd well before mixing the ingredients for any type of raita.
  • Use thick curd(yogurt) for raita.You can even roast cumin seeds before powdering to give more flavour to your raita.If you prefer garnish with cumin powder while serving.
