We all know that cucumber is low in calories and has lot of health benefits.

It has high water content, helps hydration and weight loss.

Do you know it can be tasty and can be included in many Indian recipes?

Roasted peanuts

Garam masala

Sev mixture

Tamarind chutney

Arrange sliced cucumbers,add toppings in above order.

2 ) Cucumber Roti/Chapati/flatbread

1 cucumber washed and peeled

1 teaspoon salt

2 to 3 cups wheat flour

In a bowl ,Grate cucumber and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.

Add salt and mix

By gradually adding wheat flour ,make a dough.

Dough should be not very soft , little more flour is helpful as cucumber might leave more water and make it sticky until you roll the Roti’s.
