Mint Raitha

Cucumber is one of my favorite vegetables that I snack on.Seasoned with salt, black pepper and a dash of lemon juice, this vegetable typically fills my hunger pangs.
Pureed mint is stirred into beaten yogurt spiced with Cumin, Coriander and Paprika powders.Add the Cucumber pieces for crunch!

2 cups Yogurt
1/2 cucumber, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
1/4 tsp Cumin Powder
1/4 tsp Coriander powder
1/4 tsp Paprika
2 green chillies, finely chopped
Salt to taste
  • Puree the fresh chopped mint leaves with as little water as possible
  • Whisk the yogurt making sure that it is smooth with no lumps
  • Pour the pureed mint paste
  • Stir in the cumin, Coriander powders and Paprika
  • Toss Cucumber pieces and green chillies in a bowl along with salt until well combined
  • Pour the mint-yogurt into the Cucumber-chilli bowl.
  • Mix well
  • Refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Serve it with Pulao
