Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1/2 a grated cucumber (no peels)
    1 1/4 cup plain yogurt
    1-2 tsp cumin powder
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Directions

Makes 12 2-Tablespoon servings

Peel cucumber. For a thicker sauce, remove seeds as well. Grate cucumber finely. Combine in a bowl with the yogurt and spices. Stir and allow to chill for about half an hour. The longer it sits the stronger the cayenne will become, so be conservative until it has had a chance to soak in.

I love this over rice, as a dip for veggies, or as a topping for spicy meals such as curries.
