Cucumber Raita

Cucumber Raita | Vrat Wala Cucumber Raita | Kheere ka Raita with step-by-step pictures and detailed recipe. Cucumber Raita is cool and soothing raita perfect as a dip, snack, or an accompaniment. It requires very few ingredients to make this raita. mainly you will need is cucumber, yogurt, cumin powder, green chilies, and salt.

Cucumber Raita pairs very well with Vrat wale Aloo Peanut ki sabzi and Amaranth and Buckwheat flour poori. This Raita also adds as a great accompaniment with  Sabudana Khichdi and Samo Upma. This is one of my favorite raita as it also has cooling properties and in summer it simply hydrates you. I enjoy snacking on this raita when I am not in a mood to eat a lot.

When it comes to raita I really enjoy eating them with Beetroot Rice and Paner Mutter Pulav. Serve this raita with spicy curries like Paneer Tawa Masala and Baby Potatoes in Kolhapuri Gravy to balance the spiciness
