Sweet Cucumber Salad


  • 1 cucumber skinned and grated.
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 red Thai Burapa pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt


  1. Pound the chili and fennel seed in a mortar and pestle.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, stir, and serve.
  3. This is a fresh, light twist on a traditional cucumber salad and goes great with a spicy curry dish- the yogurt helps cut the burn of even the hottest chili peppers!
