¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (plus a sprinkle for garnish)

Deseed and dice the tomato and the cucumber. Toast the cumin seeds in a dry pan over medium heat until aromatic and slightly browned. Remove, and use a mortar and pestle to grind the seeds into a powder.
Put the yogurt in a bowl and beat with a fork until smooth and creamy. Add salt, cayenne pepper, the cumin powder, cilantro, chopped tomato and cucumber and mix well. Garnish with a pinch of ground cumin, cayenne and cilantro.
