It's super hot these days. No I am absolutely not complaining, this is much better than being cooped up at home due to snow or worse still sleety rain. But just that the temperature soaring means I start craving for cooling foods. My absolute favorites are dahi (plain yogurt) and chaas (buttermilk). I love plain dahi but more often than not love transforming it into different raita's thereby adding some flavor and pizzaz to it. So here goes the recipe of super simple and super delicious vegetable raita.
1/2 English Cucumber or 1 small one
1 small Red Onion
2 Green Chillies
handful of corriander leaves
Salt to taste
2 tsp Roasted Cumin and Black Pepper Powder
1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp Sugar *Optional
2 to 2.5 cups Dahi / Plain Yogurt
Implements / Utensils
1. Dice all the veges into small cubes.
3. Add all veges and half of the corriander leaves to the yogurt mix and mix together with a spoon.
4. Clean the sides of the bowl and sprinkle some cumin and pepper powder, some red chilli powder and the remaining corriander
