Another famous and popular dressing/dipping dish (that’s what I called it) in the Indian cuisine. There are many variations of making this dish but the cucumber base is the most common one that most of the users like. It is very simple to make and quick. It goes well with rice and roti (Indian bread). You can try making a just plain with some chili flakes and cilantro or with some fried dough like vadas and pakodas. You can check them out in this site.
