Truly enough, cucumbers are cooling for the system and are voraciously crunched upon, in the hot summer months.
However, apart from re-hydrating, cucumbers have several other health benefits as well.They alleviate sunburn, improve the skin and bones. The humble cucumber is believed to even help fight cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Let’s look at a simple recipe that combines the satisfying full feeling that a pancake gives, along with the ‘coolness’ of the cucumber.
Note 1: Vegetarians may omit the egg.
Note 2: Coconut milk powder-1 small packet OR coconut milk tetra pack – 1/2 pack may be used instead of the fresh coconut.
Note 3: If you wish to ‘spice up’ your pancake, you may add 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera), 1-2 finely sliced green chillies and some chopped coriander leaves to the batter.
It is certain to leave you asking for more and more!
