This delicately spiced treat from India only takes two steps to make and it creates a palate-pleasing, cooling soup perfect for warm summer nights or even warmer summer afternoons.
So creamy and refreshing, and if you leave out the spices, it even makes a cooling, soothing facial mask! Two recipes in one.
2 cups plain low-fat yogurt
1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and minced
2-3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
3/4 teaspoon ground roasted cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste
1. Beat the yogurt in a bowl with a whisk or fork until smooth. Mix with the remaining ingredients.
2. Chill until ready to serve.
