Cucumber Raita

A crisp, cooling cucumber dip that is lovely with a starter but also a wonderful side for any main.

Hari says

A great cooling side for any Indian meal to help cool down a spicy dishes but also to ensure you have a balanced meal. There are may different ways to make your yoghurt a bit more exciting and this is just one of them. I also use this as a dip as well.

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • ½ cucumber (more if you want)
  • 200ml low-fat natural set yoghurt (I also like to use Greek yoghurt)
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp Kashmiri chilli powder


  1. Carefully grate the cucumber, leaving the skin on.
  2. Either using a cloth or just your hands, squeeze any excess liquid from the cucumber.
  3. Once it is drained place in a small bowl.
  4. Add the yoghurt and garam masala and stir the cucumber through.
  5. Sprinkle the chilli on top to serve.
