Hi..welcome to Tanish Kitchen. Today is Raita specials day...

Today we will see about Cucumber raita. It is very simple and easy to make. Usually cucumber and curd will give coolness to the body. Also if rice is too spicy, having this raita is good combination.

Ingredients:
Cucumber peeled- 2 (medium and cut into small pieces)
Onion - 1/4. chopped into small pieces
Curd(yogurt) - 1 cup
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seed - 1/2 tbsp
Urad dal - 1/2 tbsp
Asafoedita(hing) powder - 1/4 tbsp
Salt to taste
Curry and coriander leaves
Green chilly - 1(cut is as circle)

Method:
1. Take a bowl, add the cut cucumber, curd, salt,  and coriander leaves. Mix it very well. No need to add any water as cucumber will have moisture already.
2. Heat the pan with spoon of oil and add mustard seeds. Once mustard seeds are popped, add urad dal.
3. Once urad dal became golden color, add cut green chilli, curry leaves and Asafoedita powder.
4. Now take the pan away from heating, add it to the raita mixture.
