Indian cuisine is one of John's favorites. This pasta sauce is basically a
variation on the Indian raita, a cooling, soothing combination of cucumber,
cilantro and yogurt. Do not substitute non-fat yogurt for low-fat: over the
heat of the pasta, the former becomes too runny. Have all the ingredients 1
