Dahyatli Kakdi - Cucumber Yogurt Salad

This is one of the innumerable ways of making cucumber & yogurt salad - the one that my mom makes it.

Dahyatli Kakdi
Cucumber - Yogurt Salad
1 big cucumber or 3-4 small cucumbers, peeled & grated
1/2" ginger, peeled & grated
1 cup plain yogurt (I used organic fat-free)
1 tsp sugar (optional)
1 green chili, chopped
1/2 tsp mustard seeds powder (preferably freshly ground)

1. Squeeze out moisture from the cucumber.
2. Mix all the ingredients.
3. Chill & serve

1. If desired, you can add tempering of oil, mustard seeds & asafoetida. I didn't add any.
