Wash and peel the cucumber and cut it into small pieces. I usually cut them into two horizontally and into 4 vertically and chop thin.
To this chopped cucumber add yogurt and laban/buttermilk. you can use water instead of buttermilk. Mix well
Take the ingredients given under To grind in a small mixer or chopped and add 2 tbsp of water and grind it roughly.
Add this ground mixture to the raita, along with salt. Mix well and let it sit for 30 minutes. Serve with any mixed rice dish and enjoy the flavors.
