Though it is not yet summer here officially, the weather has become a little warmer. You feel like having something cold now, be it juices, salads or ice creams. In my family, all of us like buttermilk, and my daughter likes the cucumber raitha, so I put the two together and added some cucumber to the regular buttermilk. It's very simple to make, very healthy cooler and tasted really good..
Need To Have
Curd Or Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Cucumber - 1/2 cup chopped
Chopped Coriander - 1 tablespoon
Asafoetida - 1/4 teaspoon
Salt - to taste
Grind the cucumber pieces into a smooth paste. To this add the curd, coriander, salt and asfoetida, blend everything well. Serve it chilled.

Remove the seeds from the cucumber before grinding it.
Homemade yogurt is always a little thin, if you are using store bought thick yogurt use some water.
If you buy buttermilk, do it the same way, there is no right consistency, it is individual preference.
