how to make instant cucumber pickleIngredients:
3/4 cup finely chopped cucumber (peeled)
2 tbsp Mustard powder (black or red mustard)
1/4 tsp hing
2 tsp water
Salt to taste
1 tsp lemon juice

Method:
1) Take the chopped cucumber into a bowl. Add 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp hing, mix with a spoon. Keep it aside for 20 minutes.
2) After 20 minutes, gently squeeze out water from cucumber. Take this water into a blender. Add mustard powder and blend well. If you find the mixture is very thick then add a tsp of water. After blending for a couple of minutes, the mixture will become whitish. Add it to the cucumber.
3) Heat oil into a tadka pan. Add mustard seeds, hing, turmeric powder and green chilies. Pour this tempering into a separate glass/ steel bowl. Let it cool down before adding to the cucumber.

Cucumber instant pickle can be enjoyed with chapati and also as a side dish in the meal. Refrigerate upto 3 to 4 days.

Tips:
1) Since this pickle stay good for 3 to 4 days, make it in a small quantity.
2) Cucumber oozes out water once salt is added to it. If you use extra water to blend the mustard powder the pickle will become much watery. To avoid that, use the oozed out water to blend mustard powder.
