A cooling yogurt condiment: Cucumber Madras Raita

Yogurt is integral to Indian cuisine and is often consumed in some form with every Indian meal–whether it’s in a drink like Lassi, in a curry itself or just eaten plain on the side.

For your next Indian meal, make this yogurt condiment known as Raita as a side condiment to temper the heat and add coolness to the palate. It really is a lovely complement alongside a spicy curry.
