Cucumber Raita / Vellarikkai Thayir Pachadi

     We need to create raita as side dish for Biriyani and other rice based recipes. Cucumber raita is a healthy variant. You can also have it as a stand alone cool dish during summer.




Ingredients:
Curd
1 cup
Cucumber (medium size)
1
Onion (small size)
1
Curry leaves
1 spring
Chopped Coriander Leaves
1 tbsp
Pepper Powder
½ tesp
Roasted Cumin (jeera) Pwder
½ tesp
Salt
As required

Procedure:
1. Wash and peel the skin of the cucumber. Then cut it into small pieces.
2. Peel and chop the onion into fine pieces.
3. In a bowl, add chopped cucumber pieces, chopped onion pieces, curry leaves, coriander leaves, salt, pepper powder and cumin powder. Mix them well.
4. Now add the curd and mix them gently. Cucumber raita is ready to serve.
Serve it chill or at room temperature.

    This goes well with roti, pulao and biriyani.
