This cool yoghurt salad is the perfect for hot & spicy food.  Especially, it taste delicious with biryanis.  Addition of raisins makes this raita more tasty from the regular method.  Amma makes this very often during the peak summer days.  Even now I try to add this in my regular menu during summer.  Very cool & refreshing salad perfect partner for hot Indian dishes.

Ingredients :
  1. Cucumber - 1 medium sized 
  2. Curd / yoghurt - 1 cup
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Raisins - 1 tbsp
