Cucumber Recipes | Indian Cucumber Recipes

Cucumber Recipes. Indian Cucumber Recipes. Cucumber is a specie of fruit that is used as a vegetable. It is a long cylindrical vegetable that is mostly made up of water. Even though originally from South Asia, they are now grown all over the world. Cucumbers have many varieties and are mostly eaten in 2 forms – raw and pickled. Due the high water content, they add a freshness to the dishes. Cucumber also gives a cooling effect to your body and that’s why people eat it a lot in the summers.

Indian Cucumber Recipes 

Mumbai is known for its famous roadside sandwiches and no mumbaikar sandwich can be made without cucumber. Whether it is a Vegetable Grilled Sandwich or just a normal Open Sandwich, cucumber is usually used along with tomatoes and potatoes. Little tiny cubes of cucumber are also added to chaats like Peanut Chaat that served on the streets of Tamil Nadu to counter to the spiciness of the chilli.

Masala PapadMasala Papad

In southern India, curd rice is an everyday dish, but if you want to change it up a little bit, you can make Carrot and Cucumber Curd rice to give it a little more texture and taste. In my states in India it is customary to serve food with a side dish and many a times this side dish is Kachumber. This is the simplest thing to make as it only consists of a mix of chopped cucumber, onion and tomatoes with a squeeze of lemon. This kachumber can be sprinkled over fried papad to make the crunchy Masala Papad.
