Kakdi/Kheera Ki Sabji | Cucumber Curry

Kakdi/Kheera Ki Sabji | Cucumber Curry

If you wonder what to do with cucumber other than making salads, to use in sandwich then here is the answer for you.  Kheera Sabji or Cucumber Curry is one of easy and quick dish to make as it's hardly 10 minutes and minimal ingredients ...now what more you can ask for?  This is again a Rajasthani dish, a recipe from my sister, here cucumber is not fully cooked but kept till crunchy so if you don't like little rawness then you may not like this dish.  I made this couple of weeks back when the weather was so hot and I had no mood to cook, for those days it's a wonderful recipe to be prepared quickly.  You can also use 'kakdi' the thinner variety of cucumber available in India, if you want to try a new recipe then it's for you :D




Ingredients:

Cucumber - 1 Cup chopped [ I used 3 baby cucumber]
Red Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Garlic Pods - 2 chopped or crushed
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Water - 1/4 Cup



Method:

1.Wash and chop cucumber, keep aside. [you don't have to peel the skin, unless the skin is very thick]


2. In a pan heat oil, add mustard, cumin seeds and allow to splutter.  Add garlic once it's golden brown add chopped cucumber and cook for 2 minutes.


3. Now add all powder masalas, salt and  mix well, cook for 2 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water and cook for 3-5 minutes or until oil separates in low flame.


And our sabji is ready how simple n quick is that?  Enjoy these with roti/paratha or any variety rice.
