- Then add cumin powder, red chilli powder , required salt then chopped cucumber and coriander leaves. Mix well.
Serve with biryani / even rotis!
- 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.
