Cucumber Curry [RECIPE]

Simple Recipe and Amazing Flavors ... Never thought of making something with cucumber ... I had cucumber sambar at one of my friend's place and that inspired me to try make this curry. Quick and simple - hope you all enjoy it !

If you want to make this at the last moment before having lunch or dinner - its a great idea. The cooking time is less than 10 minutes!


Ingredients:
  • 1 big Chopped cucumber ( I have used the cucumber with seeds , you can remove seeds if you want. )
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds 
  • 1 tsp oil 
  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder 
  • 1/2 tsp sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala powder 
  • salt to taste 
  • 2 dried red chilies 
  • pinch of dried mango powder 
Method:
  • Heat oil in a pan 
  • Add cumin seeds, asafoetida and dried red chilies. 
  • Once the cumin seeds are a little brown , add chopped cucumber.
  • Add red chili powder, garam masala powder, salt, sugar and dried mango powder.
  • Cook it with lid covered for 8 to 10 mins 
  • Ready to serve.
Tip:
Make sure you don't add any water to cook this because cucumber leaves enough water to cook by itself.
