Long Squash yogurt dip - Lauki Raita

Long squash is one of the cooling vegetables. y mother used to make this raita very often during the hot summer days. Its easy to make and is a perfect accompaniment to pulaos or any meat dishes.


Long squash                                    1 peeled and grated
Yogurt                                             2-3 cups
Salt                                                  1 tsp
Black pepper                                   1/4 tsp
Onion                                              1/4 finely chopped
Tomato                                           1 finely chopped
Sugar                                              1 tbsp


  1. Put grated squash in a pot with half a cup of water and cook for 10-15 mins until most of the water is evaporated and squash is tender.
  2. Drain and keep aside till it cools down.
  3. Whisk the yogurt with salt, pepper and sugar.
  4. Chop onion and tomato finely and add to the yogurt.
  5. Add drained squash and mix. Serve chilled.


I used smoked paprika for the top.
