Relish Yogurt?

I hope you are one of those people that loves yogurt, because today we shall make yogurt relish.  Perhaps this will make it more attractive to those of you who don't like plain yogurt.  The variations are amazing too!

Yogurt Relish

1 Persian cucumber - peeled and grated
1 cups Greek yogurt
1 minced garlic
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon white sugar (optional)
1/4 tsp minced green chillies (optional)
1/2 tsp roasted cumin, coarsely ground (optional)
1 tsp roasted peanuts, coarsely ground (optional)
Finely Chopped cilantro for garnish

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Serve cold.
Variations:  Use finely chopped onions(skip the garlic in this case), cooked eggplant, boiled potato or chick peas, or chopped up fruits in place of cucumber.  Use int instead of cilantro. 

By the way, this goes great with tomato rice! :-)
