Raita, or raitu as it’s normally called in Gujarati, is synonymous with Indian food, and made in lots of different ways in different regions of India. This recipe is the one I grew up eating, it’s really simple to make and can be whipped up just before serving, whilst the curry bubbles away on the hob. You can find black mustard seeds in most Indian grocers and some bigger supermarkets.
Raitu, makes 1 cup
3 tablespoons of natural yogurt
one heaped tablespoon of grated cucumber
1/4 tsp of black mustard seeds
Mix all the ingredients together, and add salt to taste. Serve immediately with your chosen curry.
