  • 1 cup Greek yogurt or Indian curd
  • ½ cup water optional
  • ½ tsp. Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 tsp. roasted cumin powder
  • Salt to taste

For garnish

  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro and mint leaves


  • Take 1 cup Greek yogurt or curd in a bowl and whisk it till creamy.
  • Add grated or chopped cucumber, black salt and roasted cumin powder to it.
  • Mix well.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro and mint leaves and serve chilled.



1. Use chilled Greek yogurt for a better tasting raita
2. You can use chopped green chilli or jalapeno for a spicy kick. 3. You can add chopped cucumber instead of grated cucumber in the recipe. You can also add some chopped red onion for a zing. 4. Add some water to the raita in case you like your raita runnier
5. If you plan to serve it later then do not add salt to the raita. Add it just before serving. This is because raita will become runny otherwise.
6. Make it and refrigerate in advance.
