Cucumber Pachadi and A MeMe

Cucumber pachadi is a quick to make instant side dish for all kinds of mixed rice.


1 Medium sized grated cucumber (any variety would do)
Salt as per taste
1 big cup of curd
Finely chopped coriander leaves
Bit of asafoetida
To temper:
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds

Just mix all the ingredients together and temper with mustard seeds.

And now for the MeMe

Anu of Chandrabhaga blog tagged me for the first MeMe

Here are the rules for the Meme..

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself.
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them)
4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

1) I love all kind of crafts and always am keen on learning new techniques and forms of arts.

2) I am a restless person...I cannt sit idle for a while and need to keep doing something

3) I am impatient too..Once i start doing some handwork, I dont move around and my mind doesnt work on anything else until I complete it.

4) I think several times before spending money on anything for myself, but at the same time, dont mind spending for others.

5) I keep missing my family members although we visit them very often.

EC it was good to read your meme.. I'm like you when i start an embroidery or something I find it so difficult to stop. Everything else around the house comes to a standstill - that's why i haven't done anything after my daughter was born :) With the no. of blogs you have.. I can totally understand your not liking to sit idle point :)
