READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by mliss29

From Madhur Jaffrey's World of the East Vegetarian Cooking. I ususally make it with 2 regular cucumbers sliced on a mandolin slicer. And I just throw unaltered sesame seeds in it.

Nice. I make one similar, but add a little splenda. (Use sugar if you prefer, but I am diabetic.) Keep on hand in the fridge to go with everything!
