Even I love this Cucumber Raita; it's perfect for health. I usually have three cucumbers, and I slice it well then add other veggies like tomatoes, bits of fruits, add brown salt to it and mix it well. Sometimes I add Yakul to my curd. It adds on to the taste. You will get more healthy recipes on here -
