Khamang Kakdi Recipe,Kakdi Chi Koshimbir
Khamang Kakdi Recipe,Kakdi Chi Koshimbir. A delicious and an easy salad of cucumbers, roasted peanuts, coconut tempered and coriander leaves.
My family likes cucumber a lot, so I make many dishes out of cucumber. Gj is a salad person, so whenever he buys cucumber, he would ask me to make this Khamang Kakdi or Greek Cucumber Salad for him. I make this Khamang Kakdi salad very often because it just needs the basic ingredients.
We are not a big fan of coconut. Whenever I make this Khamang Kakdi, I would add very less coconut just for the sake of adding it. If you love adding coconut, then add coconut generously. The more coconut you add, the more tastier this salad would be.
I usually make this salad for brunch during weekends or during my lazy days. This is a super easy and simple salad. Try this salad and your family will love it.
