Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.
I am going on a vacation to India and therefore would be away from the blog world for a few weeks.
See you next year. :)

Pomegranate - Cucumber Raita

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

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.
