Radish and Cucumber Raita

This content was last updated on February 7, 2020

Keep it light and fresh this week with a cooling raita. This simple condiment is made with just 4 main ingredients — radishes, cucumber, yogurt and spices. Radishes are cruciferous vegetables rich in vitamin C and anthocyanins while cucumbers contain vitamin K. Use it on hot kebabs, herbed flatbread or as an easy side dip.


  • 2 large radishes, quartered and thinly sliced, (about ½ cup)
  • 1 small Persian cucumber, quartered lengthwise, thinly sliced, (about ½ cup)
  • 1 cup plain whole milk yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
Makes 6 servings (¼ cup per serving). Per serving: 30 calories, 1.5 g total fat (1 g saturated fat), 5 mg cholesterol, 2 g carbohydrates, 2 g protein, 0 g dietary fiber, 115 mg sodium, 2 g sugar, 0 g added sugar.


  1. In mixing bowl, combine all ingredients.
  2. Set raita aside 10 minutes to let flavors develop. Raita will become a bit thinner.


If Persian cucumber is not available use a 5-inch cucumber, halved lengthwise, seeds scooped out and discarded and cucumber finely chopped.
