peeled and slit lengthwise
hung curd or greek yoghurt
finely chopped with greens
alfa alfa sprouts
soaked in cold water
Peel and slit the cucumbers lengthwise.
De seed the inner core using a spoon (see video) Chill in refrigerator till you need to fill it.
Chop the green onions finely. Use all the whites and some of the greens
Soak the alfa alfa in iced water, so that it untangles and the sprouts open up. Drain before using.
In a clean bowl, mix the hung curd or greek yoghurt with all the other ingredients.
Taking a small spoon, fill the cores of the cucumbers with the filling. A little will drip out. You can either leave it, or wipe it with a clean paper towel.
Heap the sprouts on the yoghurt mix.
This salad can be filled in advance, or just before eating. Either way, the filled boat, or the filling and cored cucumber should be in the refrigerator till served.
