This is simple and tasty salad, I luv it's aroma, texture and of course taste. Some people called it ......."Kakadichi Koshimbir".

Ingredients:

  • Green cucumber- 2 
  • Green Chilies, finely chopped- 2
  • Lemon juice- ½ lemon 
  • Fresh coconut, scrapped- 2 tbsp (optional)
  • Peanuts crush- 2 tbsp
  • Fresh coriander, finely chopped- a handful 
  • Sugar- ½ tsp or to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Clarified butter (Shudh ghee)- 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida (Hing)- ¼ tsp
  • Cumin seeds- ½ tsp

Method:
  • Wash cucumber and peel. Cut out both ends. (Taste a little piece of cucumber because some cucumbers are bitter.)
  • Chop finely and rub little salt. Keep aside for 2 minutes. 
  • Squeeze cucumber and discard excess water.
  • Combine this squeezed cucumber,  peanut crush, chilli, coriander, fresh coconut, sugar, lemon juice and little salt (add salt carefully because we have already rubbed salt to cucumber). Mix well.
  • Heat ghee in a tadka pan or small pan. Add cumin seeds, hing and switch off gas. Do not burn cumin seeds.
  • Pour this mixture to cucumber. Mix again.
  • Serve in any meal as side dish.
You can eat for fasting/vrat/upavas, just avoid to use hing and coriander leaves.
