  • 2 cups whole milk yogurt I love the Brown Cow brand as it has a little bit of sourness in it, that works well in a raita
  • 1 cucumber diced
  • ¼ red onion diced
  • salt to taste
  • 1 serrano pepper chopped, optional
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro


  • Beat the yogurt well in a bowl with a wire whisk. Add a few tbsp of water to thin it out a little, if needed.
  • Mix the cucumber, onion, salt and serrano pepper to this.
  • Garnish with the cilantro and serve.
