Chilli Squid and a Cucumber Yogurt Raita Salad
A cucumber raita is the perfect accompaniment for our chilli squid. This dish is ideal as a shared plate, starter or even as a main meal. Our cucumber yoghurt raita salad has the proportions inverted — a lot of cucumber and tomato with a smaller amount of yogurt dressing - which makes this salad not only a cooling agent to pair with chilli squid but a substantial salad also. The combination of our chilli squid and cucumber yoghurt raita salad makes this dish a versatile menu option, just portion appropriately depending on whether you feature the dish as a starter, shared plate or main meal. Great for any venue wanting to add interesting menu options. Labour light, delicious and a great profit opportunity!

For the cucumber yoghurt raita salad
Make the dressing by placing yogurt in a medium bowl and using a very fine grater to grate the garlic and ginger over it. Stir in sugar, lemon, seeds, half of the mint and coriander and season it with salt to taste. Set aside. Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise, then each half three more times into long wedge-shaped pieces. Cut them into 3cm lengths on a diagonal. Combine tomatoes, onion cucumber and mix half of the dressing with the salad. Sprinkle with remaining mint and coriander and serve with extra yogurt dressing on the side.
