Kakdi nu Raitu (1) - Cucumber Yogurt Salad

This salad appears very similar to Dahyatli Kakdi but garlic is the key ingredient which changes the taste and reminds you of desi version of tzatziki sauce.

Kakdi nu Raitu(1)
Cucumber Salad
1 big cucumber or 3-4 small cucumbers, peeled & grated
salt to taste
1 cup plain yogurt, drain the yogurt in a cheesecloth or coffee filters or use plain Greek yogurt
sugar to taste (optional)

Grind to paste
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1-2 green chilies
1/2" ginger
1 garlic clove

1. Mix the paste with grated cucumber, sugar - if using and salt.
2. Add whisked yogurt.
3. Serve immediately

Note -
1. Generally, if kept for a long time, grated cucumber leaves lot of water. So make this salad just before serving.
2. You can use Greek yogurt where whey is already drained off.
