Back after a nice vacation with family and friends at Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary.We had great fun and got an opportunity to see few wild animals in its natural habitat.Its been a while since I posted on my blog and finally here I am.Summer calls for vegetables like cucumber and onion.I usually make raita or salad with cucumber.So this time I wanted to make something different and after a lot of browsing and reading I got an idea to make canapes which can be a perfect starter or snack in any party.The use of hung curd and fresh mint makes it more suitable for this summer. You can add fried sev or mixture to the topping when serving for kids and they will love it.These cucumber canapes can also be prepared in a jiffy if you have hung curd or cream cheese ready in your house.
Preparation time:10 minutes
Hing curd-1/2 cup
Roundly sliced (1 inch thickness)cucumber-1 no
Finely chopped onion-1 small
Red chilli powder -1 tsp
Cumin powder-1 /2 tsp
Chat masala- 1 tsp
Mint leaves-10 approximately
Sev or mixture (optional)-for topping
1.In a bowl add the hung curd(or cream cheese),salt,red chilli powder,cumin powder and chat masala and mix well.
2.Take the cucumber slices and top it with hung curd and sprinkle chopped onion and a mint leaf.You can also add sev or mixture.
3.serve immediately as a snack or starter.Yummy cucumber canapes are ready.
*You can also add grated carrot or pomegranate as a topping along with onion.
*Optionally you can get creative and add sweet chutney or green chutney as toppings.Then add sev on top to make cucumber chat.
