How to make Khamang Kakadi

  1. Rinse and peel the Cucumber. Taste both edges of all the cucumber before chopping. Discard if any Cucumber is bitter. Finely chop all the Cucumber and place in a bowl. Add little salt and keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Lightly squeeze the Cucumber to release the extra water. This step will avoid the salad from being soggy after addition of peanut powder and Coconut. Discard the water.
  3. Roast the peanuts on a heated skillet or pan. Let it cool down, remove the peel by rubbing and grind to a coarse powder in a mortar and pestle or just pulse in grinder. Take care not to make a fine powder.
  4. In a mixing bowl place the chopped Cucumber , fresh scrapped Coconut , coarsely ground peanuts , finely chopped green chillies and finely chopped fresh coriander leaves. Mix properly .
  5. Heat up 1 -2 tbsp of ghee in pan on a medium heat. Add Mustard seeds, Cumin seeds, Hing and Curry leaves. Once the mustard seeds crackle and cumin seeds sizzle, put off the flame. Pour this tempering over the Cucumber mixture.
  6. Season the salad with lemon juice , sugar and salt just before serving. Give it a quick toss and serve the delicious and refreshing Summer salad and enjoy with your loved ones !
My Tip: If we do not add the mustard seeds, hing and curry leaves, this salad can serve as a fasting food ( food for vrat) . This salad is usually paired with Sabudana khichadi.
