- Peerl the cucumber and scoop out any seeds with a spoon. Grate the cucumber flesh, sprinkle with salt, place in a strainer and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
- Rinse off the salt and squeeze out any excess moisture by pressing the cucumber with the back of a spoon.
- Mix the cucumber with the yogurt and stir in the chili powder.
- Back to the chicken:.
