Cucumber Kuttu

Come summers and the ability to eat food decreases, we all look for some simple lunch and dinners instead of regular elaborate ones. The ones that doesn’t require much work in the kitchen and healthy too.

Cucumbers you find in abundance and is one for the best veggie to consume as it is a great coolant. So the other day, I got one and thought of making this kuttu as a side dish for chapatis. A easy to cook veggie, goes well with curd rice or plain rice too with dollops of ghee and papadam by the side. 🙂
