  1. Build a fire in your grill. When the coals are all ignited, the flames have died down, and the temperature is medium (see Gauging the temperature), you're ready to cook.
  2. Brush the bread rounds with oil on both sides, then place on the grill directly over the coals and cook until nicely toasted and brown on one side (about 4 minutes). Flip the bread over and grill the other side until golden and crusty (3-4 minutes more).
  3. While the bread is on the grill, combine the cucumber, yogurt, mint, lemon juice, cumin, and salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well.
  4. Cut the bread into wedges or just set it out so people can tear a piece and spoon the yogurt relish on top.
