Cucumber Raita

Raita (also spelled raitha) or pachadi is a South Asian/Indian condiment based on yogurt (dahi) and used as a sauce or dip.

While Lord Hanson didn’t truly like curries, Lady Hanson did enjoy a few mild curries with a few ingredients taken out though, but here I have left them in as in my opinion they are integral to the dish. This particular recipe is, as her Ladyship liked it though.

You Will Need

1 cucumber
Salt to taste
5 fluid ounces of plain yoghurt


Peel the cucumber and shred on a coarse grater, sprinkle lightly with salt and leave for 1 hour. Gently press off the liquid from the cucumber, mix in the yoghurt season to taste. Chill and serve with hot curries.
