    Serves: 4 

    • 1 big cucumber
    • 1-1.5 cup sour yoghurt ( tok doi)
    • Salt as needed
    • 1 teaspoon of sugar
    • A paste of 8-10 green chillies
    • 1 tablespoon of coriander leaves paste
    • 1 tablespoon of mint leaves paste

    Prep:8min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:18min 

    1. Peel the skin of the cucumber. Chop it into thin small slices, approximately as long as French fries.
    2. Mix the sliced cucumber with yoghurt, salt, sugar, green chilli, coriander and mint leaves paste slightly. If it is mixed too quickly or too much, then water will come out of the cucumber and ruin the taste.


    Make right before the food is being served, or else the water will come out.
