Khamang Kakdi /Cucumber Salad Recipe – 2

As I love the crunch of peanuts in this delicious Cucumber salad, decided to innovate by adding a peanut chutney instead of peanut crush. It tastes divine! Goes well with both Rice or Roti. I ended up having it as a meal by itself. Recipe Link to the peanut chutney is shared below.

Ingredients :

  • 250 gms Cucumber
  • 4 tbsps grated coconut
  • 3 green chillies minced
  • 3 tbsps Peanut Chutney
  • 1 tbsp Ghee/clarified butter
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Jeera/Cumin seeds
  • 2 sprigs Curry leaves
  • 2 tbsps finely chopped coriander leaves
  • Salt
  • Juice of half a lemon.

Method :

Wash and deskin the Cucumber. Plunge it in ice cold water for about ten minutes. Remove and chop fine. Drop in the peanut chutney along with the grated coconut into the chopped Cucumber . Crush the finely chopped green chillies with salt and add it to the salad. Mix well. Heat Ghee in a pan. Add the mustard seeds and after they splutter add the cumin seeds. Toss and add the curry leaves. Pour the seasoning into the salad. Add the finely chopped coriander leaves and drizzle with lemon juice. Mix and serve immediately.
