Simply Delicious Raita | Yoghurt & Cucumber Raita | Raita Recipe | Cucumber Yoghurt Side Dish

Updated: Jan 29, 2023

Raita is a cool, refreshing side dish that goes very well with all Curries, Biriyani and with Gujarati Dal and Rice. I just love it and have been making it a lot recently!

Some of the key things to make really delicious Raita are to:

- squeeze out as much liquid from the cucumber as possible;

- get a thick Yoghurt, like Greek Yoghurt, or use a cheesecloth to remove water from plain Yoghurt;

- Let the Raita sit in the fridge for at least an hour once made so the spices mix well.

Simple and delicious! Enjoy!!

Raita Recipe Cooking Time 15 Minutes (Approx)

Let it sit for 1 hour in fridge

Serves 3-4


  • A 10 Inch Cucumber (approx)

  • A Small Piece of Carrot

  • 2 Tbspn Chopped Coriander

  • 1 tspn Salt

  • 1 tspn Ground Cumin

  • 1/4 tspn Ginger-Garlic-Chili Paste

  • 1/2 tspn Whole Mustard Seeds

  • 1 Cup (250ml) Greek Yoghurt


Grate the cucumber in a bowl.

Squeeze the liquid from the grated cucumber then place the cucumber in a separate bowl.

Grate the carrot into this bowl.

Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Refrigerate the mixed Raita for at least 1 hour to allow the spices to combine.

Enjoy with any Indian dish!
