cucumbers peel's spicy buttermilk
Cucumber in any form is highly nutritious and as we all know it has end number of health benefits ,we three like to eat cucumber mostly raw with salt and pepper but my husband loves the vegetable out of it with dal and rice,today i made it in lunch and we make this sabzi without its peel and we throw out the peel ,but today when i was peeling cucumbers i remembered nithu's event and i really felt i should try something out of this peel and this recipe was born,i really thank nithu for hosting such an innovative and nutritious event where we are bound to think and use the waste which are nutritious yet we dont use them in our regular basis.Needless to say this is my entry for her wonderful event "Best Out Of Waste".
3 medium size cucumbers peel ( i used the lebanese cucumber variety which have smooth texture and dark green in colour )
1/2 cup yoghurt
1 cup water ( adjust more or less acc to the thickness required )
1 tsp grated ginger
2 green chillies ( adjust acc to your taste buds )
salt to taste
1 tsp roasted cumin pwd
1/2 tsp kala namak (black salt )
Wash the peels of cucumber,add ginger and green chillies and grind into a paste,add yoghurt,water,salt,cumin and kala namak to it and grind again till smooth and frothy.Serve immediately or you can chill and have it.
