1 medium cucumber—peeled, halved, seeded and coarsely shredded
1 small tomato—halved, seeded and finely diced
3/4 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
1/4 cup sour cream
1 small jalapeño, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons chopped mint, plus more for garnish
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
How to Make It
Place the cucumber and tomato in a fine strainer set over a bowl and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt. Let stand for 20 minutes.
Lightly press the cucumber-tomato mixture to release any excess liquid and transfer the mixture to a serving bowl; discard the liquid. Stir in the yogurt, sour cream, minced jalapeño, 2 tablespoons of chopped mint and the lemon juice and cumin. Season the raita with salt, garnish with chopped mint and serve.
