Cucumber and Red Bell Pepper Raita
- 1 English hot-house cucumber, peeled and diced
- 1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
- 6 ounces plain yogurt
- 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
- Salt and pepper
Put all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Chill, covered, for at least 1 hour.
Cook's Note: Raitas are yogurt salads that are designed to counter-balance the spiciness of Indian foods.
