Notes

Tips/Tricks

  • cucumbers have a lot of water in them so I usually add finishing salt to the dish rather than salt the cucumber directly
  • use only 100g of yoghurt if serving 2ppl but 200g if serving 4ppl
  • you can substitute Lebanese cucumbers in the recipe
  • add some grilled chicken or pork loin to this dish and you have a delicious main course dinner
