For Tempering:

Preparation Steps:

  1. Peel the outer skin of the Mangalore Cucumber (Sauthe) and separate the seed portion. This portion will not be used in this recipe. To use the seed portion, check out the Mangalore Cucumber Seed Soup recipe on this website.
  2. Dice the cucumber into 1-inch pieces.

Cooking Steps:

  1. Cook the cashews and diced cucumber together by adding 2 1/2 cups of water in a pressure cooker. Cook for 2 whistles.
  2. Ensure there are no seeds in the tamarind. Grind the coconut, red chillies, and tamarind with 1 cup of water in a mixer to form a smooth paste.
  3. Add the ground paste to the cooked cashews and cucumber. Season with salt and boil for 2 minutes.
  4. In a separate pan, heat ghee for tempering. Add mustard seeds, split urad dal, and chopped curry leaves. Once the mustard seeds start spluttering and the dal turns golden brown, add chopped onion and sauté until golden brown.
  5. Add the tempered mixture to the curry.
