This Cucumber Mint Raita (Salad) is a refreshing accompaniment to any main meal. The curd and the minimal spices used here will balance out and neutralize your otherwise spicy meals. This raita is super quick and easy to make, and goes amazingly well with any biryani/ pulao.
This Raita is also a Vrat recipe and can be consumed during fasting. If there’s anything in the ingredient list that you don’t eat while fasting, you may simply skip/ replace it.
I have used regular homemade curd here but you can substitute it with greek yogurt, full fat or low fat curd as per your preference. Also preparing this raita and chilling it for 1-2 hours in advance in the refrigerator before you serve will enhance the mint flavour in this Cucumber Mint Raita.
Add the puree to chopped cucumbers and add the remaining 3 tablespoon curd, cumin powder, coriander powder, black salt and regular salt. Mix well.
Adjust the quantity of curd depending on how think on thin you like the raita to be.
