An instant side dish which will complete your meal. My Mom do a lot of experiments in the kitchen. Be it quick recipes, side dishes or Mithai. One day she made me taste this and I loved it to bits. It’s lip-smacking yum.
As the name suggests, it is made of cucumber and curd. You might be wondering what is it and how does it taste like? So basically it’s more like raita but has got a thicker consistency and it has got a flavourful tadka of hing, curry leaves and mustard seeds. Super easy and can be made in 5 minutes.
Let’s get started.
Cucumber Curd Salan | Kheera Salan
An instant side dish which will complete your meal. Have it with Roti or Rice. Lip-Smacking yum! 😀
Peel cucumber and finely chop into small cubes.
Take hung curd and mix it well with the help of a spoon for a smooth consistency. Keep it aside.
Heat oil in a small kadhai or pan. Add mustard seeds, hing, chopped green chili and curry patta. Let it splutter.
Add cucumber cubes and mix. Close the kadhai with a lid. Let it cook on low flame for 2-3 minutes. It will get cooked with the steam. Now add turmeric powder and salt. Mix well and switch off the gas.
Once cooled down, mix this mixture to curd and garnish it with freshly chopped coriander leaves.
Serve it as a side dish. It's more like a chutney or semi thick raita. Have it with roti or rice.
