After spending a lot of time in India you learn to loooove raita! But this is definitely not Indian raita. I should have known when I saw the mint, but I figured I'd try it anyway. The only change I made was to dice the cucumber. It didn't taste bad, it was just very minty and not what I was looking for. I'll continue to keep my eyes peeled for a good mixed raita recipe (cucumber, tomato, onion).
I strained regular yogurt through a strainer over a bowl for about two hours before mixing. This makes the consistancy thicker like Greek yogurt, which we can't get in my small town. Still, I agree that it probably should have been thinner actually because restaurant raita is much more like a thin sauce. This raita was okay as a condiment for rice biryani and on top of naan, but it was missing something. We couldn't figure it out. Maybe some cumin would help the flavor. I will definetly keep searching for more raita recipes.
This is a cool and tangy tomato-mint raita which pairs well with spicy Indian foods like biryani, tandoori, or kebab.
