Cucumber Chutney:

When I saw this chutney recipe in our Facebook Foodie group, I was attracted mainly because of the veggie. One of my daughters loves cucumber and I tried this recipe by pairing it with very mild flavoured Fresh chick peas Pulav. It was a pair made in heaven, and everyone liked this chutney, not only with the Pulav, but also with rice, Dosa or chapati. 

This recipe is by Jayanth Desai one of our Foodie member and all thanks to him for sharing this flavourful chutney of North Karnataka region.
