Refreshing Cucumber Raita/Curd and Cucumber dip

Refreshing Cucumber Raita/
Curd and Cucumber dip

Hi Friends,
HAPPY NAVARATRI TO ALL OF YOU
I know you all are busy in the preparation of upcoming festivals  dussehra, Durga pooja, Karwa Chouth, Diwali etc. So in that busy schedule sometimes we need something very quick and healthy. As we need time to prepare lots of sweets and some wants to shed few kilos so that they can gulp lots of sweets on festivals without and maintain the actual weight, heheheh. very true in my case. 
So i am searching for recipes with less ingredients, healthy and quick. So today i am here with a very refreshing, quick, easy, healthy Cucumber Raita. It will take hardly 10 min to prepare it. You can have it as side dish. Its quite filling and can be taken as whole meal itself. This is also taken in Navaratri Vrat. My hubby who is on fast now, take it as dinner as this is a FALAHAAR. I will highly recommend it to weight watchers. So guys try it with your reasons to have it.

Ingredients:-
Curd - 2 cups
Cucumber - 2 
Black salt - as per your taste
Black pepper- 1/2 tsp

Method:-
Gather your ingredients

Peel and grate cucumber

Take curd in a bowl 

whisk it well and remove lumps if any

Now throw in your salt and pepper powder

Mix it well

add grated cucumber in it

Mix it well

Raita is ready to serve 

SERVE 

 You can serve it with plain boiled rice/pulao/biryani


Or serve it with chapati/roti

Or just a have a bowl full 

Sending this to Milk SweetsNavarathri 2012 event


Notes:-
  1. You can add green chilly of Red chilly powder to add spice.
  2. I have used black salt, as i like its taste, you can use normal salt as per your wish.
  3. You can skip black pepper powder in case you don't like it.

HOPE YOU WILL LIKE IT
