Chunky Cucumber Raita


Step 1Wash the cucumber and prepare all the remaining ingredients for the raita.

Step 2Grate the cucumber. You can either use a regular grater or a slicer (to make ribbons), or both for chunky texture.

Step 3Place all of the ingredients in a bowl: grated cucumber, yogurt, lemon, olive oil, chopped mint, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper.

Step 4Stir to combine and season more to taste if needed. Optionally, drizzle the raita with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.

Step 5Serve immediately with any proteins such as these Lamb Koftas, or cover with a cling film and store in the fridge for up to 2 days. Stir before serving.
