This is a very versatile side dish that makes a wonderful accompaniment to grilled chicken or lamb kebabs and sizzling curries.

For Kids: If strong spices are a deal-breaker, you can leave all but the cumin. You can also sweeten the yogurt and then try this dish with grapes instead of the cucumber and onions or small, diced pineapple.

For Adults: Substitute jewel-like pomegranate seeds for the cucumbers and onions, and use honey to sweeten the yogurt a little, to balance out the spices. It is a perfect side to accompany our lightened Lemon-Ginger Fried Chicken.
