Kheera Doskaya ( Cucumber) Curry

Kheera curry, This is the first time I made experiment with kheera. The other day I was talking to my best friend who lives in Texas, she told me about this recipe. First I thought it may not be good but after preparing this curry, I felt it would be difficult for any one to trace the difference between bottle gourd(Sorakaya) and this cucumber. I love it!!! hope you will love it too!!!

Medium sized pealed and cubed cucumber-2cups
Tomato---------------------1big
Onions chopped------------1 cup
