I make this raita in a slightly different manner. In 1 tsp hot oil, I splutter mustard seeds, cumin seeds and a few curry leaves, also add thinly sliced green chillies, then add this seasoning to cucumber cubes mixed in thick yogurt with some salt to taste.

Thanks Nisha for sharing this wonderful recipe of cucumber raita. This raita is also my favorite. As per my choice it is the best Indian condiment. It is truly delicious.
