How to make Cucumber kadi— cucumber recipes

I feel ,whatever we make, the new recipes, the traditional old ones ,though appreciated always, sometimes fails to satisfy the family members , especially when a particular demand is not fulfilled.Everything else made with love loses its value.Oh??You did not understand… Just a thought.

We have to keep on looking for new recipes or modify the old ones so that there is some so called change.

So today , I made this kadi( spicy buttermilk) the usual way, only, thought of adding some cucumber cubes. I have never used cucumber in anything expect in salads and recently in my bhel.

I have seen people adding Dudhi/lauki/bottlegourd in kadi. But cucumber also seemed a great idea and tasted delicious. Everyone loved it and the smile was brought back!!!
