Speaking of nutrition, cucumber is packed with vitamin C and A. Vitamin C helps to protect against immune system deficiencies, prenatal health issues, etc., while vitamin A is key for good vision and maintaining a healthy immune system. Cucumber raita can be had as such in its own right, and if blended well, can be served as buttermilk too. It is a good source of vitamins for those who are planning for a baby.
