Cucumber raita is a refreshing Indian yogurt sauce, great served with spicy foods (such as curried lentils) as a palate cooler. Or tuck some into a falafel-filled pita, or spoon it over grains, vegetable croquettes and grilled vegetables. Store raita in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
