    Suggestions for a word that these mandala images evoke, a complementary quote, or some history or other information about the flower itself are most welcome.

    cool associations...and a recipe

    this one makes me think of cool white linen shirts and India...and then the green core makes me think of cucumbers and overall i am left with a sense of raita (a cooling yogurt dish for consumption after the spicy spicy indian dishes with cucumbers and some spices).


    2 cups plain yogurt (or soy yogurt eg. Whole Soy brand)
    1 teaspoon organic sugar +/- taste
    1 teaspoon ground cumin +/- taste
    1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes +/- taste
    Salt and white pepper (black is carcinogenic)
    1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced (from the garden in the summer!!)
    1/4 cup chopped fresh mint (from your kitchen windowsill garden!)

    1. Whisk yogurt until creamy. If thick/stiff, thin it with a teaspoon or more of lemon juice and whisk again.

    2. Stir in remaining ingredients.

    3. Enjoy with friends after a yummy indian(-inspired) meal.

    Yield: 2 cups - vary as needed. This may only be enough for a small group of people.
