Cucumber Raita – Cucumber Greek Yogurt

Note: To remove bubbles as seen in the picture, mix the raita prior to serving.

Raita (traditional Indian/Pakistani condiment) is like Tzatziki sauce except it is much thinner.

Ingredients for Raita:
1 cup Greek Yogurt
1 cup Chopped Cucumbers
1 tsp Dill – (I had dried Dill at home, if you are using fresh Dill, use a handful)
¼ tsp Chopped Garlic or as per taste
Salt as per taste
A handful of Italian Parsley

Method:
Blend all the ingredients in a food processor till you reach a desired consistency.
Serve chilled.

Ingredients for Tzatziki sauce:
1 cup Greek Yogurt
1 cup Chopped Cucumbers
½ cup of Sour Cream
1 tsp Dill – (I had dried Dill at home, if you are using fresh Dill, use a handful)
¼ tsp Chopped Garlic or as per taste
Salt as per taste
A handful of Mint (if you like, this is not necessary for this recipe)
½ Lemon, juiced
1 tbs of Olive Oil (as per preference – I prefer using minimal amount of Oil in my cooking so I do not add it).

Method:
Remove the seeds from the Cucumber prior to chopping.
If you are using regular yogurt for Tzatziki, (which is a much thicker blend than raita) make sure you drain any or all water from the yogurt prior to mixing it up with the Seedless Cucumber.
Add all the ingredients together and blend in a food processor.

Serve chilled.
