How to make Cucumber Boats

  1. Hang yogurt for 1 hour in a Muslin cloth. Boil sweet corn and when nearly done, add chopped spinach and shut the gas. Let it blanch for a minute and then drain.
  2. Whisk the hung yogurt and add corn, spinach, lime, salt, zaatar, Chili flakes and chill it in the fridge.
  3. Cut the cucumber half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds making a hollow boat. Leave the skin on, it gives a nice crunch.
  4. Spoon in the curd mix and sprinkle rose petals and pistachios.
  5. Decorate with spinach leaf & tomato slice fixed in satay stick. Serve Cold.

My Tip:

Za'atar is a generic name for a family of related Middle Eastern herbs.
