Zucchini Raitha

Nothing can beat raitha as a side for the ubiquitous briyani. Raitha (pronounced rye-tha and not raw-ee-tha) is a goto accompaniment for the briyani. The most common vegetables used in raitha are red onions, cucumber or carrot. This Zucchini variant is just an inspiration from a friend's salad recipe and I loved it. This is a great low-calorie dressing too for simple salad for lunch. A simple raitha to cool your body with a serving of veggie, how awesome is that! 

Inspired from here
Serves - 2-3
Yogurt, greek or Desi curds - 1 cup
Zucchini - 1
Lemon juice -  about 1 tsp
Mint leaves - a fistful
Salt - to taste
Pepper - to taste

Whisk the yogurt until smooth. Peel and grate the zucchini in a grater with the large teeth. Finely chop the mint leaves. Mix all three and chill in the fridge until ready to serve. Just before serving, add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with any spicy rice dish, like the Mushroom Briyani.
