I haven't posted much raita recipes till yet, so love to post simple, easy to make cucumber raita, which has a cooling effect in hot Summer days and also helps in digestion. This is a great side dish, mainly a yogurt based dish, goes well with biryani or pulao. It can be had as an accompaniment with some sabjis and chapathis too.


1 Medium Sized Cucumber
1 Cup Plain Yogurt (thick)
1 tsp Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp Roasted Cumin Powder
2 Sprigs Coriander Leaves (finely chopped)
1 tsp Sugar
Salt to taste


Wash, peel and grate the cucumber. Set it aside.

Mix salt, sugar, Kashmiri red chilli powder and roasted cumin powder. Blend nicely.

Add grated cucumber and mix well. Sprinkle chopped coriander leaves, red chilli powder and cumin powder on the top. Serve Chilled with any pulao or biryani dish.
