Few days ago, I shared a recipe of cucumber as a curry, but it is a mild spicy curry. Here is another way we cook cucumber in Sri Lanka.
1 medium size cucumber
1 onion sliced
1-2 dry red chili crushed into pieces
1 sprig curry leaves
1inch piece pandan leaf/(rampa)
1 tsp chili powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp fenugreek seeds
Piece of cinnamon
Salt to taste
1/2 cup thick coconut milk
2-3 tbspn cooking oil
Peel cucumber, remove the seeds & cut into pieces.(about 1 inch).Keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds once oil is heated.
Once it is popping up, add onion,crushed chili and curry leaves & pandan leaf.
Sauté for few seconds until onions are tender & releasing good fragrance.
Then add cucumber & mix well.
Add all the other spices .Mix all together, cover with a lid, allow to cook in medium flame.
Once cucumber is cooked add thick coconut milk. Stir well.
Adjust salt to taste.
Simmer for few seconds & remove from the flame.
Serve & enjoy!!
