I wanted to make something refreshing and light to go with the Indian lunch I prepared. So I made a cucumber salad which is easy and light. It makes a wondeful cooling accompaniment for the spicy Indian curry.
1 Japanese cucumber or normal cucumber (de-seeded), cut into 0.5cm thickness
3/4 to 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, lightly toasted and crushed
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 tsp lemon juice
salt & coarsely grounded pepper to taste
1. Mix all the ingredients well.
2. Chill at the refrigerator for at least 30mins before serving.
