A-Jaad - Thai Cucumber Cool Down

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by alvinakatz

A nice pickled cucumber dish to cool you down while eating a spicy meal. Is cooling even though it has some chili in it. You can adjust the amount of chili, or omit it all together, to your liking. From Sheila Lukin's All Around the World Cookbook.
