"Quick and tasty Indian yogurt side dish that can help cool down any spicy meal. You can also add other veggies like onion, tomatoes, or bell peppers. I ate this almost every day growing up. The leftover cucumber seeds also taste great marinated in a little lemon juice with salt and pepper!"

Good! A nice balance of flavours. Second time round I added 1 clove of very finely diced garlic, which I thought worked well.

This rendition of raita is perfect. I didn't change a thing. I thought the salt would be too much, but it was just perfect.
