Cucumber Raita

imageCucumber raita

Cucumber raita is prepared with thick curd and cucumber. The preparation of cucumber raita doesn’t require any cooking. Cucumber raita goes well with any roti, pulao or biriyani too. I’ve served cucumber raita as an accompaniment to carrot roti. Both cucumber raita and carrot roti are no onion no garlic recipes. So the recipes can be served during vrat days. Already I’ve posted Carrot Roti in my previous recipe. Here I present simple and quick cucumber raita which can be served as a side dish to carrot roti. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
