The Dill and Cucumber Raita is an unusual accompaniment to your meal, one that is sure to tantalize your taste buds. A simple tempering and addition of spice powders like cumin or chilli powder are common touches that you expect in any raita.

But, this one is nothing short of a specialty. Here the curd-cucumber mixture is perked up with dill leaves that have been sautéed with cumin seeds, garlic and other ingredients. This gives an interesting twist to the cucumber raita making it super aromatic and flavourful.

Serve this raita chilled, to relish the crispness of cucumber and the sharp accents of dill. Make your meal interesting with other dishes like Paneer Parathas or Vegetable Pulao .
