Nepali Cucumber Salad

I have never tried or tasted any Nepali food before. Anyway the event ‘Flavours of Nepal’ made me curious to search for Nepali cuisine. I found this Cucumber Salad is interesting & tried it. Really it was delicious.

2 green chili cut lengthwise

A pinch of turmeric powder
A pinch of chili powder
1-2 tbspn cooking oil
Salt to taste

Wash & slice cucumber lengthwise.Squeeze to remove excess water.Keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan & add all ingredients other than cucumber & lime juice.
