Cucumber Raita

This Month's Film: A Passage to India
Cuisine: Indian (Bihar)

No spicy Indian meal is complete without a cooling Cucumber Yogurt Raita to quench the fire. This one is a simple recipe of grated cucumber and plain yogurt, seasoned with cumin and sweet paprika. What a refreshing complement to the rich palate of spices in Bihari cuisine.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month, along with my 'Passage to India' film review.
