Sowthekai Hasi Gojju / Raw Cucumber in Spicy Coconut Gravy

I received a request from a couple of my readers to post a few fast and easy to make recipes for pregnant women. So, here's one such simple recipe that is really ez to make and goes well with rice.... Not too sure if it satisfies all the nutritional needs of pregnancy, but it would definitely set your taste buds tingling!!! I made this dish first, as a quick fix, when we had recently moved into our new place and I hardly had anything in my pantry.... But we liked it so much that I've started making it quite often now!!! This dish takes hardly 10 mins to make and yet tastes so delicious!!! I hope you guys like it as much as Naveen and I do....


1/2 Cucumber, peeled and chopped finely
2-3 tbsp Grated Coconut, fresh/frozen
2-3 tsp Jeera/Cumin seeds
2-3 Green chillies
2-3 strands Cilantro
3-4 tbsp Curds
1 strand Curry leaves
1 tsp Oil
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
A pinch of hing
Salt as per taste


  1. Gring together - coconut, jeera, green chillies, cilantro and hing to form a smooth paste. Note: Adjust the green chillies according to you spice level.
  2. Add the masala paste to the chopped cucumber; Add curds, salt and mix well. Add water to get the desired consistency.
  3. Temper with mustard seeds and curry leaves; Serve with hot rice and enjoi!

Variation: You could even add some tamarind (according to your taste) instead of curds. This makes it more tangy and spicy. Add water to get the desired consistency.

Some more quick fixes from my blog.....

My ajji calls it Menasale, I love to have it on a very hot day in Summer. Not very nutritions except for yogurt but tastes so good. Now adding tamarind juice is a great idea, I might try it!:))
