    diner524's Note:

    This is a recipe I am posting for ZWT - India, untried by me at this time. I found this recipe on "Greeting India". Sounds like a wonderful side dish of cucumber salad. Time doesn't include the time to drain yogurt so allow 1/2 hour in addition to time posted.

      We liked this very much. In fact it was completely finished in about 3 minutes. It is a cooling and delicious side to have with Indian food that is heavily spiced or hot from red pepper or chilies. I could eat this all by itself and be very happy. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      This Salad went well with Afghan - Style Chicken (Murgh) #482020 by diner524. Helped with the spiciness of the chicken. Made as written. Thank You. Made for ZWT8

      Very good. I made the recipe as directed using an English cucumber that I sliced with a mandolin. It was very cooling with our Garam Masala Chicken.
