Cucumber Raita

Prep Time:


Cook Time:





- 1/2 a large cucumber, skin removed and diced into small squares, removing as much water as possible
- 2 cups greek style yoghurt, or a vegan yoghurt of your choice
- 1 green chilli, finely sliced
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin powder
- 1/4 tsp  ground pepper
- 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- A handful of roughly chopped coriander and mint (mint is optional)


1. In a bowl, add all the ingredients, except the cucumber, and half of the coriander and mint, if using.

2. Mix well with a spoon, just don’t use a whisk or you'll turn the yoghurt into more of a liquid!

3. Have a taste and adjust the spices, adding more chillies, salt, cumin or yoghurt if you like.

4. Stir in the cucumber, coriander and mint leaves and serve!
