INGREDIENTS

  • 1cucumber (8-1/4")Cucumber (with Peel)
  • 1 1/2cup (8 fl oz)Whole Milk Plain Yogurt
  • 2tbspPeppermint (Mint)
  • 1ozCilantro (Coriander)
  • 0 1/2tspSalt
  • 0 1/8tspCurry Powder

DIRECTIONS

Cooling raita is a staple in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisines. It cools hot curries, but it's also great with mild dishes and spiced grilled meats and even as a dip.  See below for a variation.  Please use fresh cilantro in this recipe for the best flavor.  Each serving is 1/4 cup.
 
  1. Peel and grate the cucumber, squeeze out excess water and place into a medium bowl.
  2. To the bowl add the yogurt, minced mint and cilantro, salt and curry powder. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to allow flavors to blend.
Tzatziki:  Prepare Raita according to directions, omitting the mint, cilantro, and curry powder and adding 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 1 mined garlic clove and 2 teaspoons lemon juice.  For a more authentic dish, use Greek yogurt, which is thicker and richer - lower in carbs - then the standard supermarket variety yogurt.

Cooking Tip

Comment calculer les glucides nets

Avec l’approche nutritionnelle AtkinsMD, le décompte net AtkinsMC est calculé en soustrayant le nombre de grammes de fibres et de polyols (comme la glycérine et les alcools de sucre) du nombre total de grammes de glucides contenu dans les aliments entiers. Ce calcul correspond au concept voulant que les fibres et les polyols ont des répercussions minimales sur le taux de glycémie dans les quantités dans lesquelles on les retrouve dans les produits.
