  • 4 cucumber 500 grams, skinned and diced to small cubes.
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt ( or make thick yogurt by hanging yogurt in cheesecloth for 1 hour, see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder or ½ teaspoon garlic paste


  • Put all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Mix well and serve chilled.


You can make greek yogurt at home by straining off the whey water from regular yogurt.
To do this spread a clean cheesecloth (or any thin cloth) over a colander. Also, place a bowl under the colander. Pour ½ kg (500 grams) yogurt over the cheesecloth. Now, bring the edges of cheesecloth together and tie it with a string. Let the liquid whey drain in the bowl. You can place a heavy bowl over the yogurt bag to speed up the straining process.
The yogurt would be thick after one hour. Greek yogurt is ready to use.
