The cucumbers are what New Yorkers call 'English' cucumbers but maybe any sort of cucumber will do. Maybe it would also work with courgettes/zucchini grated or sliced very thinly or pared along the length. I like to get the surplus water out of cucumbers although it can be quite a performance removing the seeds and maybe the skin although I like it, sprinkling the sliced or grated cuc with a little salt and leaving them to drain then rinsing off the salt then patting off the excess water.
This is a salad with the dressing made of plain yoghourt. Greek style yoghourt is the tastiest but I just use my low fat sort. It is seasoned with chopped fresh mint or cilantro/ coriander, a drop or two of vinegar or lemon juice or a teaspoon of bottled mint sauce, plus a spoonful of oil- I use olive- a pinch of salt to taste Chopped scallions/spring onion or fine chopped red onion can be added. Sometimes I add very fine sliced red peppers and fine sliced tomatoes, preferably deseeded and skinned

This is an Indian dish very refreshing by itself or part of a summer meal and a tasty accompaniment to a curry
