Cucumber Raita (Kakdi Chi Koshimbir)

Cucumber Raita (Kakdi Chi Koshimbir)
Cucumber Raita/ Koshimbir/ Salad can be served with any Indian meal. I simply adore it for its simplicity and crunchy texture. It’s quick and easy to make with just a few ingredients.
  • 3 medium size Cucumber/ Kakdi
  • 4 green chilies
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1tbsp crushed groundnuts
  • 1 tbsp chopped green coriander
  • 2 tsp pure ghee
  • ½ tsp Jeera
  • salt to taste


  1. Roast groundnuts remove the skin and grind to small pieces.
  2. Heat ghee in kadai, add jeera, when jeera starts popping add green chili pieces. Keep this tadka aside for cooling.
  3. Peel and mince cucumbers.
  4. Mix cucumber, salt, sugar, lemon juice, crushed groundnut and coriander.
  5. Pour the tadka over the mixture. Mix well.
