Cucumber & Tomato Raita (with a secret ingredient)!!

Raita is something that I have adored from my childhood. It is very tasty and very easy to make. I like raita to sit in the refrigerator for an hour at the very least before serving it chilled, with rice.
At one of my daughter's birthday party, one of my very dear friends mentioned to me that she adds Sour Cream in her Raita. After I tried her version, it is hard to go back to just yogurt!!

1 cup thick yogurt
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sour cream
1 medium cucumber grated
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
4 green chillies
1 tsp cumin powder
Salt and Black Pepper
  • Whisk the yogurt with water until it is thick
  • Add the sour cream to it
  • Add the grated cucumber, cherry tomatoes, chillies, cumin powder, salt and pepper
  • She also uses her hand to mix all the ingredients by squishing the tomatoes, instead of a spoon
  • Serve cold with rice or any rice dish
