Cucumber Raita

Fresh mint

Raitas are yogurt-based relishes that provide a refreshing contrast to spicy dishes, and often feature mint, which in this recipe is combined with cucumber. Coconut yogurt works beautifully to create a vegan version. Make sure to use crisp, flavorful cucumbers.

    seeded, and chopped, or 1 long English cucumber (no need to peel or seed)

  • 1/4 cup  chopped ed fresh mint
