Cucumber Pachadi

This is very simple pachadi which is basically raita. Most of the pachadi's are made out of yogurt and some don't. Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:-
  1. Cucumber - 1/2 (1 if it is small)
  2. Yogurt - 1 cup
  3. Salt - a pinch
  4. Oil - 1/2 tsp
  5. Mustard seeds - 1/4tsp
  6. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  7. Green Chillies -1
Just chop cucumber into very small pieces(squares) or shred the cucumber. Add yogurt to it. Add salt and green chillies to it. Take a small pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds and asafoetida powder, when it splutters, pour it on top of yogurt. Now pachadi is ready to serve.

I am not very familiar with Indian cooking save for the more familiar curry, paprika and other more well known spices. I ma sorry I don't know anything about asafoetida powder.

But I am sure that is one healthy recipe.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers!
