    Easy to make, really nice side dish for curries and other spicy food. I was surprised at how much my husband and I enjoyed it.  -  27 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this is such a delicous side to have! It can go with almost anything, but is especially good with rice! I absolutely adore it!  -  26 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious, cool and easy to make. I added more cucumbers and less yogurt but kept the seasonings the same and the dish was a hit.  -  15 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
