Cucumber Sabzi

Summer is heading to start. We can keep our body cool by adding watery vegetables in our cooking even. Cucumber is one of the most common we all love to leave it as it is, without any cooking even. As an alternative we use them for salads. In this recipe, cumcumber is used to make a simple and tasty sabzi. This will be very mild in taste, not much spicy. So we can mix this sabzi with white rice and give for kids also. This can be had with spciy curries like tamarind curry. That makes a balanced and tasty meal.



Ingredients:

Cucumber - 2 medium (cut to 3 inch length)
Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Rice flour - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste

Method:

1) Heat a pan. Add the ghee, add peppers and curry leaves.



2) Then add turmeric powder, pepper powder and the rice flour.



3) Now add the cut cucumbers.



4) Mix it very well so that every piece of cucumber gets coated very well. Then add water and salt to it.



5) Let it cook until cucumbers gets soft. Add more water if necessary, as rice flour will absorb water.



6) Remove from flame, once it is well cooked and becomes thick.



Cucumber sabzi, with great taste is now ready to taste.
