We had a fabulous Indian dinner last night with friends that included lamb, beef, chicken, apricot rice. All the meats were marinated with vegetables with scrumptious Indian spices. Cucumber Yogurt Sauce is often used to tone down spicy flavors in dishes like this. It is easy to make and should be added to your dishes when you create spicy curry dishes. It can also be served in a gyro in pita bread with tomatoes and lettuce.
