What is Kakdi Ki Sabji?

Kakdi as in cucumber, snake cucumber to be precise, cooked with tomatoes and spices makes an interesting side dish which is so perfect for summers, as it is easy and super quick to make and light on the belly. Summers don’t give many choices as regards the vegetables are concerned, so let’s make use of whatever is available. Kakdi ki sabzi comes to the rescue when the fridge has no main veggies or when you are fed up of having the regular veggies.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Kakdi Ki Sabji

Make sure to use the kakdi that is not overripe. Taste each kakdi to ensure it is not pungent/sour. I have cut the kakdi into roundels, as I believed this way the dish will look more appealing and kakdi will remain crunchier And of course, it takes less time to cut it like this. But you can cut them fine. I have used homemade tomato puree along with few very basic spices for this recipe. You can use pureed tomatoes instead, but tomato puree gives much better results.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
