Instant Cucumber Pickle

Cucumber Pickle

Whenever you crave for a pickle that involves no frying or grinding, then try this pickle. I used green American cucumber for this pickle. This is so easy to prepare with easily available ingredients.

  • 1 small Cucumber
  • 1 tsp Sambhar Powder
  • 2 tsp red Chili Powder
  • A pinch of Turmeric
  • 3 tsp Oil
  • Salt

Wash the cucumber well and wipe off with a paper towel. There should be no moisture as this pickle tends to attract mold if wet.

Then peel its skin and chop into fine pieces. Transfer these pieces to a dry bowl.

Add all the rest of the ingredients to these pieces and mix well with a clean spoon or spatula.

Leave it covered for 30 minutes so that all the ingredients blend well.

That’s it! The yummy cucumber pickle is ready to be eaten. Enjoy this pickle with steaming hot rice.

This pickle can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Never leave it outside when not using.

Oh,that's a neat idea!
You know,in salem(tamil nadu)we get cucumber cut into four halves and they will sprinkle this sambar powder,red chilli powder and salt.
We love so much!! The ingredients are similar,i am sure this tastes great!
