Cucumber and Mint Raita recipe

A raita is a lovely, cooling sauce that you can serve over any curry or with any spicy meal. Use fresh mint as the flavour is best, although dried can be used in a pinch. Slice the cucumber in whichever way you fancy.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 500g Greek yoghurt
  • 3 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. freshly chopped mint
  • Pinch caster sugar
  • Pinch salt

Directions:

  1. Peel, slice and seed the cucumbers then cut into slices.

  2. Stir the cucumber with the yoghurt, lemon juice, mint, sugar and salt. Leave in the fridge for a few hours before serving.

You could also add something like a spring onion or a small bunch of chives to the raita for extra flavour. Recipe serves 6.
