Simple & Quick Subzis ~ Cucumber Subzi / Kheera Koora / Southekayi Palya


This simple, south Indian style preparation uses the regular, green cucumbers and is going to be my third day "microwave cooking" entry of BM#8.  Needless to say this one is quick, delicious and goes great with rice.
Check what my fellow marathoners are cooking.



Ingredients:
For tadka: 2 tsp oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp urad dal, 1 tsp chana dal, 4 red chillies broken into bits and few curry leaves
2 cups peeled and cubed cucumber
Salt to taste
1/4 - 1/2 cup grated fresh / frozen coconut
(1/8 tsp of turmeric powder may also be added while cooking cucumbers.)

Method:
Heat the oil in a microwave safe bowl and add the tadka ingredients. When the dals turn reddish, add the cucumber and continue to cook until done. Then add the salt and coconut to the cooked cucumber and mix well. Cook for  a couple of minutes more and remove the bowl. Serve with hot rice.

I love this!!
My dad likes cucumber curry almost like the one you made sans coconut! Whereas my husband and mom prefer the addition of some kind of koor podi :)
I can eat in whichever way if it is not too spicy !
