About Cucumber Raita
Cucumber raita is called kheera raita in the Hindi language. Kheera is a hindi name for cucumber.
Making cucumber raita is an easy process. You need cucumber, curd and a few spices for it.
In the spices, you need salt, red chilli powder, chaat masala, roasted cumin powder, black salt.
Just grate the cucumber and put them in the whisked curd with the spices in your desired quantity. Your cucumber raita is ready.
You can use any cucumber for it. Even I do not remove seeds from it. These taste good in the raita.
Healthy Version: Do not squeeze out the water of the cucumber after grating it. It will make raita little running.
Try this instead of grating: Instead of the grating you can finely chop the cucumber and add it to the curd for making cucumber.
