There is a certain joy in eating chilled Curry with bowl of piping hot rice on a warm afternoon. This was my lunch few days back when the temperature was still warm in the afternoons. Southekayi Hasi Gojju a Karnataka style Raw Curry made with Cucumber and Coconut. Packed with bold flavours of curry leaf, mustard, asafotida, cilantro and green chillies. Paired with a bowl of hot Matta Rice/ Red Rice and Papadum, this lunch was pure magic.


I had this Curry years back at a friends place and I had been meaning to make it ever since. Since this Cucumber and Coconut Curry is made with simple ingredients which I had in my refrigerator and pantry, I decided to give it a try. If you are looking for a ten minute curry recipe that’s healthy, vegan, gluten free and flavour packed, this is your one stop shop.
