Cucumber raita / Cucumber Yogurt Dip

 Raita was the yogut based dip , served along with spicy foods like briyani , pulov or stuffed paratha or even with plain roti .My mom makes raitas when she has no time to make any sidedish .We like to raita with plain roti too. Raita was a common sidedish in our family .
Check out my other raitas .
 The recipe I am sharing today is the cucumber raita , it is the dip made by using grated cucumber with the yogurt.
 Cucumber is rich in water content which avoids dehydration and helps in acting as a body coolant.
I like to have with raita with plain roti.

Requirements :
Grated cucumber – ¼ cup
Curd – 1 cup
Salt to taste
Sugar – ¼ tsp
Chilli powder – 1 tsp
Cumin powder – a pinch
Method :
Mix the chilli powder , cumin powder , salt and sugar with the yogurt.
Add in the grated cucumber and mix well.
Sprinkle a pinch of  chilli powder and cumin powder on top.
Serve chill or at room temperature.

Cucumber raita is ready to serve.
