In India, these tender cucumbers are common street food – sold cut with a little bit of salt and chilli powder. The cucumber is soft enough to eat without peeling – just wash, slice off the two ends and cut into pieces.
(adapted from Vidhu Mittal’s “Pure and Simple”)
2 Cucumbers, sliced thin
1/2 cup Yogurt (I used non-fat, but I’m sure any kind of yogurt will work)
2 tbsp Mint Leaves, chopped
2 tsp Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Vinegar
A pinch of Salt
For the Garnish:
1/4 cup Peanuts, chopped
Combine all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl. Keep refrigerated.
When ready to serve, spoon the dressing over the cucumbers and top with peanuts.
