Commonly enjoyed with naan in India, yogurt comes together with cucumber, cilantro and serrano peppers for a refreshing side with a satisfying touch of heat.



  1. 1. Toast the cumin and coriander seed in a small hot pan over medium heat, 3 to 5 minutes, or until toasted. Process the seeds in a spice grinder until powdery.
  2. 2. Combine the spice powder with the yogurt, cucumber, 2 tablespoons cilantro, lime juice, vegetable oil, and chile with 1 tablespoon water in a bowl. Top with remaining cilantro.
  3. 3. Grill or toast the naan until warm, brush with butter. Serve the raita with the warm naan.
