Kerabu Timun (Kerabu Cucumber)

Want to do a easy, quick, appetizing dish ? 

I am dedicating this dish to my friend who runs a food outlet, and yet no time to cook for her own food,...sounds weird right !

Well, it's a western kitchen, so can't eat steaks all the time and just for 2 or 3 persons can't cook 3 or 4 dishes at one go...also at times you tend to run out of ideas. I always believe any wonderful dish can be just something you can grab from the kitchen or the garden. 

What dish can be appealing and mouth watering ?...can I say anything spicy and sourish !

Check this...only 10 min and no hassle !

Get a cucumber, peel off the skin, discard the seeds, chop an onion, coriander leaves, kaffir lime leaves, some mint leaves and chillies. Sprinkle some salt, sugar, lime juice and fish sauce. Mix all the ingredients.

Done ! Refreshing and appetizing ! 

Ain't that simple ?

Serving for 2paxs.

300g Cucumber (peeled skin and discards the seeds)
80g Onion (chopped)
6pcs Kaffir Lime Leaves (cut finely)
5g Coriander Leaves (cut finely)
5g Mint Leaves (cut finely)
1/2 tsp Salt (to taste)

In certain places, this dish is seasoned in sugar, vinegar + chili.

Suppose it is good for the seriously overweight restoranters ( not the skinny err I mean the slim pretty one)
