"This refreshing mixture of mint, cilantro, yogurt, and cucumber is the perfect accompaniment to a spicy curry, a Moroccan tagine dish, or a Greek lamb dish. Serve with warm naan, pita, or other flatbread. Garnish with cucumber and mint sprigs."

I have to say I'm disappointed. I'm afraid it is not to my taste or texture. I like body and texture ( bits) in my raita Just the ingredients chopped finely and mixed. (personal ) RE the smooth mixture itself, I think cilantro- mint is a bit of a misnomer. The mint was basically missing, totally dominated by the cilantro and the cumin. 2 Tablespoons cumin seems excessive for this spice. Teaspoons possibly but, for me, not tablespoons. Sorry only 2 stars max.

I think if you used more mint and less cilantro, this would be way better. As is, it's just kind of... weird. However, it does serve its purpose of cooling the palate.
