This is a very easy breezy cucumber salad recipe that my aunt used to make. Adding poha to the salad was very new to me. I tasted this many years ago and wanted to make it so badly now. My dear aunt now is old and lives in a senior facility. She used to be an excellent cook, but now she is unable to cook a single meal. I dedicate this salad to her and her excellent cooking skills.
- 1 English cucumber, peeled and small diced
- 1/3 cup poha
- 1/3 cup unsalted peanuts coarsely ground
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 green chillies
- 1tbsp grated ginger
- 1/2 lemon juice
- 1 tbsp coconut
- chopped cilantro
- Add the cucumber, poha, a little salt and mix well. let it sit for 15 mins so the poha will absorb all the water from the cucumber.
- Add the crushed peanuts, chilli, ginger, grated coconut, salt, sugar, lime juice, cilantro.
- Toss them all and serve.
Tastes good when served fresh.
