Cucumber and Pomegranate Raita

Copyright 2012 LtDan'sKitchen blogs
Raita is a condiment made of yogurt used as a sauce or a dip. It is seasoned with select herbs like mint and cilantro and spices like cumin and coriander. This is a wonderful way to balance the spicy heat of any Indian meat stew. Very simple and refreshing, this side dish is just delicious in its simplicity. No cooking required for this one too so there is no way to get this wrong.

7 oz plain yogurt
