Khamang kakdi is Maharashtrian cucumber salad also known as kakdi chi koshimbir. In Marathi Kakdi means cucumber, this cucumber salad is very tasty, creamy, crunchy and easy to prepare salad which goes well with any special rice item or roti's. I just love to have this salad as it is. Lentil based cucumber salad and this khamang kakdi are two different cucumber salad recipes to try. We can prepare this salad in two different ways by adding lemon or by adding fresh hung curd. Today I'm using curd to prepare my salad as I like creamy salads a lot. If u want you can replace curd with lemon juice as per your choice. Crunchy taste of crushed peanuts, sweet and nutty taste of scrapped coconut gives superb taste to salad. Before starting our recipe do check some salad recipes from my youtube channel and blog..

Later admin team will pair interested members, then we share 2 secret ingredients among us and prepare recipe using it and all other members will guess it.
This month theme "Maharashtrian Cuisine" was suggested by Poonam Bachhav. I love all her recipes mainly traditional recipes a lot. Do check out her Tondali masale bhat recipe.
