Pomegranate - Cucumber Raita


Here is a simple and refreshing raita prepared using juicy pearls of pomegranate and crunchy cucumbers.

Preparation:
This cool, yogurt dish is quite simple to prepare and takes only a couple of minutes if you have the ingredients ready.
Take a cup of thick yogurt and beat it with a spoon for a few seconds to get uniform consistency. Add a handful of pomegranate seeds, a handful of cucumber cubes (peeled and finely chopped cubes), a Tbsp of finely chopped cilantro and salt as needed.
Heat a tsp of oil and add 1/2 tsp of mustard seeds and a pinch of hing to it. When mustard seeds start to pop, remove and add it to the yogurt mixture. Stir well.
Either it can be served with rotis / pooris or can be eaten as a snack.
This raita tastes good when served cold and so, I refrigerate it for at least a couple of hours before serving. If you are left with any raita after serving, refrigerate it. It can be refrigerated maximum for a day since the yogurt goes sour.

Hey, Suma, That looks real cool. A unique one. I'm not a fan of cucumber mixed with anything except raw. May be I can replace it with some other fruit or vegie.
