Ingredients

  1. 1 cup grated cucumber
  2. 11/2 cup whisked yogurt (chilled)
  3. 1 tablespoon finely chopped mint leaves
  4. 1/2 teaspoon black salt or to taste
  5. 1/2 teaspoon roasted cumin powder
  6. 1/4 teaspoon chaat masala

Method

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Keep it in the refrigerator till you are ready to serve.

Recipe Tips:

  • Use fresh yogurt; do not use sour yogurt as it will not taste good.
  • To make roasted cumin powder, roast cumin seeds in a flat pan on medium heat till they turn brown in colour (while stirring constantly). Turn off the heat and take them out in a dish. Cumin seeds get roasted very quickly so be careful not to burn them. Let the roasted cumin seeds cool to room temperature. Grind them in a spice grinder or in a mortar and pestle. Store in an air-tight jar and use as required.
