Tomato Cucumber Raita

Tomato Cucumber Raita

Raitas are yogurt salads, which are served with Indian meals as a cooling balance to the other spicier dishes. They can be made using many vegetable combinations, but this is my favourite.

 1 tsp lemon or lime juice
 2 tsp Delhi Chat Masala or Punjabi Garam Masala
 salt to taste 
 2 medium tomatoes in small cubes (1/2 inch)
 1/2 English cucumber peeled and chopped in small cubes
 2 green onions finely chopped
 10 sprigs cilantro (chop 8 and reserve 2 for garnish) 
 2 cups plain whole yogurt 

Put lemon, salt and Chat or Garam Masala in a bowl and toss the vegetables until coated. Pour in the yogurt and stir together. Top with cilantro sprigs and serve. 

4 - 6 servings.
