Prep Time: 5 mins
Cooking Time: -
Serves: 3-4

1 cup Cucumber, grated
2 cups Yogurt, beaten
¼ tsp Cumin-Coriander Powder
¼ tsp Chat Masala
A big Pinch of Kashmiri Chilli Powder
A big Pinch of Kaala Namak/Black Salt
A small Pinch Garam Masala (optional)
1 tsp Coriander Leaves, finely chopped
Salt to taste

Wash, peel and grate the cucumber. I usually leave the peel as I like its crunchiness.
Squeeze excess water from grated cucumber and place it in a mixing bowl.
Put all the ingredients and mix them well.
Refrigerate raita for around 15 minutes before serving it garnished with coriander leaves.
