Hi friends! I spent the weekend on a mini vacation eating lots of gluten-free versions of the best foods (i.e. biscuits and gravy, pizza, crepes). Needless to say…carb overload. So happy.
So I’m now going to switch gears and give you a super simple, super healthy recipe for a cucumber raita.
If you are new to Indian food – any form of Indian food goes well with a side of yogurt! Raita is a combination of yogurt, some kind of vegetable, and spices. This particular one is a cucumber raita, which is a very common version.
- 2 cups full-fat plain yogurt
- 1 cucumber, peeled and chopped into small cubes
- 1 1/2 tsp cumin powder
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- salt, as needed
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour prior to serving.
