Cucumber Radish Raita

During winter in India, we get fresh long white radish a lot. I absolutely enjoy raw radish with my desi khana. I make cucumber raita all the time, this is the 1st time I combined cucumber with radish and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Raita is a dip which is easy to make and goes well with many dishes like stuffed paratha, spicy Indian pancakes, biryani etc. It also helps in toning down the heat of any spicy food. There is no cooking require. I have posted many raita recipes like cucumber raita, avocado potato raita, pineapple mango raita, hariyali raita, etc.
