“My family has been making raita this way for as long as I can remember. It's simple and delicious. The trick is to use mustard seeds instead of cumin. The mustard gives it a kick, but if you want you can reduce it. Yummy!!!”

Directions

  1. Whisk yogurt until smooth and set aside.
  2. Grate or dice cucumber. I think grated cucumbers enhance the flavor.
  3. In a spice grinder or blender crush the mustard seeds into a powder consistency.
  4. Combine yogurt, cucumber, and mustard seeds and set aside for 30 minutes. This lets the flavors blend in and the mustard can do its job.
  5. A few minutes before you are ready to serve add the salt. Adjust salt according to your needs. Enjoy!
