Cucumber Raita

When having a spicy curry, sometimes it just needs something creamy and fresh to balance it out, and Cucumber Raita is the perfect dish to do just that! This yoghurt based sauce provides the perfect counterpoint to a very spicy curry, and will really up your game on your next curry night. It combines cucumber, mint, yoghurt and onion to make an absolutely delicious side dish. It is also great for dipping poppadoms in.


1/3 Cucumber

250ml plain yoghurt

1/2 onion, finely sliced

2 sprigs fresh mint, finely chopped

pinch of salt and pepper

Pinch Chaat masala (optional, for garnish)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: n/a

Serves: 2 - 4 people (when served as a side dish with a curry)


  1. Whisk the yoghurt in a bowl, grate in the cucumber (use the big holes on a grater), add the onion, min, salt & pepper and mix through

  2. Garnish with a sprinkle of chaat masala, as well as being a nice garnish, this will also give the raita a little bit of zing
