Vellirikkai Thogayal

1 large or 2 medium cucumbers
3 tbsps oil (sesame, if you have it)
1 tspn black mustard seeds
1 tspn white urad dal
1/2 tspn fenugreek (methi)
2-4 dried red chillies
1/2 tbsp tamcon paste
a good pinch asafoetida
salt to taste

Peel cucumber, slit into half, scoop out seeds. Slit into further
narrow strips and cut tiny pieces as for kachumbar. Should not be
grated as this gives no 'bite' feel in the mouth.

Next, warm the oil and fry all ingredients except the tamarind.
Mustard should stop spluttering and dal/methi should turn brown.
Drain out these fried spices into a blender, leaving oil behind in
pan.

Add cucumber and stir fry for two mins, no more.

Add tamcon to spices in blender and with half the cucumber run on
low speed till everything looks coarsely ground and blended. Remove
into a bowl, add remaining cucumber pieces and mix well.
