CUCUMBER RAITA

                                  Cucumber raita is a good side dish with rotis/ chapathi. It is a super coolant raita very much suitable  for summer months. It goes well along with chaat recipes. As cucumber has a cooling property this raita is perfect after fast . This raita is good along with roti /chapathi/ paratha. For this yogurt , beat the yogurt until it is smooth. If you enjoy the raita in thick consistency then make sure the yogurt is thick. As cucumber has water in it so don't add much water to it.I grated the cucumber but we can cut the cucumber into small pieces . So, note down the ingredients and jump into your aprons.
