  3. 2 tablespoons chopped mint leaves
  4. 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves
  5. 1 garlic clove, minced
  6. 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  7. 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  8. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  9. Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  10. Cayenne pepper, for sprinkling
  11. Lavash or pocketless pita bread, warmed
  1. In a large, shallow bowl, mix the yogurt, peeled cucumber, mint, cilantro, garlic, lemon zest and cumin and season with salt and black pepper. Scatter the unpeeled cucumber on top. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cayenne. Serve the flatbreads with the raita.
