Cucumber Raita #2 | Blog Hop Wednesday

Blog Hop Wednesday is a fun initiative by Radhika of Tickling Palates.

 In her words, "This venture is an attempt to broaden our culinary skills, get to know each other and try out new recipes and at the same time be connected with other bloggers meanwhile making ourselves into becoming the best cook ...".

Though I had seen this event earlier, I signed up late last month and I was excited to see the schedule.This week I am paired with Sumedha of Sumee's Culinary Bites.I chose to make this simple raita to go with Vegetable Raita. I have already posted cucumber raita repcipe but Sumee's version had a dose of chaat masala that made it look more interesting and I wanted to try it...

I used:
