Cucumber and Carrot Raita

So yesterday it was the Pulao and today it's the Raita....

Of course, everyone knows how to make Raita, but here's my recipe anyway:


1 Cucumber -- english or regular -- but the english one doesn't have any seeds -- peeled and grated finely
1 Carrot -- peeled and grated finely
3 to 4 cups Whisked Yogurt/Curd -- you can also use buttermilk if you like your raita runny
Cumin Powder
Black Pepper


Set aside the grated cucumber and carrot for about 10 to 15 minutes and then drain all the excess water that gathers. If you like your raita runny, you could use really thick yogurt and keep this water as well. Mix the yogurt, cucumber and carrot well with salt.
Garnish with the cumin powder and black pepper and serve chilled.
