Cucumber and Mint Raita

Yesterday I had a delicious curry and, with a little help from TBSITW, came up with this recipe:


1/2 cucumber
250 ml/8 fl oz natural yogurt
large handful mint leaves, chopped
clove of garlic, finely chopped


Grate some of the cucumber skin, remove the rest and discard. Cut the flesh from the seeds and discard the seeds. (This removes a lot of the water.) Chop the flesh and dry a bit between two sheets of kitchen towel. Mix together all the ingredients and serve chilled.

This is so easy I wonder why I always bought raita!
