This spicy cucumber is my home-made favorites! When I was young, my mother usually cook this spicy cucumber at least twice a week! This goes great with rice. Cucumber can also be a vegetable dish! It’s soft, spicy and tasty!

Apparently, someone on YouTube thought that it was a curry dish. LOL I did not mention the word ‘curry’. So, no! It is not a curry dish but rather spicy vegetable dish. I am sure not many have heard of this dish, so don’t be skeptical and give it a try if you like spicy!
