Sliced the cucumber in half lengthways. Scoop out the seeds using a teaspoon and discard.
Grate the cucumber then squeeze the juice out of the cucumber over the sink or a bowl using clean hands.
Place the cucumber in a bowl. Add the yogurt, mint, cumin and salt.
Stir together until combined and serve.
Can I make it ahead?Yes, the flavour actually develops further if you make it a few hours ahead of time. If you are making it ahead, cover and refrigerate. It should last for 2-3 days. You'll need to give it a stir before serving, as the remaining liquid from the cucumber will start to rise to the top of the raita after a couple of hours.Can I freeze it?I don't recommend freezing it. Cucumber does not stand up well to freezing and may well break down and turn squishy upon defrosting. This will make the raita more watery and it may split.Can I swap the natural yogurt for Greek yogurt?Yes - it will work just as wellNutritional Information is per serving
