A green cow

My new name for cucumber and yogurt soup. And I have a new version: cucumber with whole milk yogurt, toasted coriander seed and fresh lime juice. Any kind of Indian bread on the side, is perfect. With a side of marinated chic peas, (red wine vinegar, olive oil, red onion or shallot and parsley) even better.
Peel, seed and grate four cucmbers. Add them to one quart of whole milk yogurt. Toast about a half teaspoon of coriander seeds (more to taste) in a heavy dry pan until fragrant. Smash them in a mortar and pestle and add to the mix along with one clove of minced, fresh garlic, the juice from one lime, a spill of olive oil, some fresh mint, salt, and pepper.
