Cucumber chutney (Taushe huLel)
A spicy cucumber chutney with a coconut base
- 2 cups cucumber pieces
- 1/2 cup fresh/frozen coconut
- 1/2 tea spn mustard seeds or a pinch of asafoetida
- 3 to 4 green chilies
- A small piece tamarind
Heat a little oil and add mustard seeds.
When they start popping, add asafoetida. (Usually either mustard or asafoetida is used. I normally add both)
Grind them with coconut, green chilies, tamarind, fried mustard to paste using very little water (like chutney consistency).
Add the cucumber pieces, mix well.
Serve as a side dish with rice.
