Excellent recipe for weight watchers...I liked the idea of tempering the grated adds a good flavour...however those on extreme weight loss diet can always opt for plain cucumber raita..

A twist to the normal raitas that we make everyday...Cucumber combined with onions, curds, chillies makes it a perfect raita...I served this chilled with parathas and kolhapuri vegetable and all loved it...
