Raita is a cooling Indian side-dish – this version is made with yogurt and cucumber but you can make it with banana too. It cools down a hot curry!
1 cucumber, peeled, chopped into small chunks and drained
300ml natural yogurt
Fresh mint, chopped finely to garnish
1. Mix the cucumber with the yoghurt and add a little salt to taste.
2. Chill in the fridge and take out just before serving and garnish with mint.
– You can make a great raita with banana, just swop it for the cucumber – it’s excellent with a lamb curry.
– Add chopped or sliced red onion or shallot.
