Sambar Cucumber Salad

Difficulty: 1/5

Sambar cucumber is a type of cucumber that is native to India. It is a popular ingredient in South Indian cuisine and is often used in sambar, a lentil-based stew. Sambar cucumber has a slightly sweet and nutty flavour, and a crunchy texture.

Ingredients:

  • 1 sambar cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup grated coconut
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint
  • 1 green chilli pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions:

  • In a large bowl, combine the sambar cucumber, grated coconut, cilantro, mint, green chilli pepper, salt, black pepper, and lemon juice.
  • Mix well and serve immediately.

Tips:

  • For a more flavourful dish, you can toast the grated coconut before adding it to the bowl.
  • If you don't have green chilies, you can use a pinch of red chili powder instead.
  • Serve sambar cucumber with rice, quinoa, or naan bread.

Variations:

  • For a creamier dish, you can add 1/4 cup of yogurt to the bowl.
  • For a spicier dish, you can add more green chili peppers or red chili powder.
  • For a more sour dish, you can add more lemon juice.

Here is a step-by-step guide for beginners:

  1. Prepare the ingredients: Peel and dice the sambar cucumber. Grate the coconut. Chop the cilantro, mint, and green chilli pepper.
