The first recipe!
I'm taking a break in explaining the various regions of India to post my first recipe--from Gujarat, the last region I told you about. The majority of Gujarati are vegetarians so this wil be a cool cucumber dish--where the cucumber is cooked gently in a mixture of spices and yogurt. I made this dish with relatives if Dinu and Leela Patel who own the Little Market in Fort Lauderdale near the corner of Oakland Park Blvd. and Andrews Dr,, a great place for stocking up on spices, basmati rice, Indian types of lentils, and fresh vegetables. Almost every city or town has a an Indian market, so cooking Indian should never be a problem. Supermarkets have most of the spices and there are lots of mail order web sites where you never have to leave home to shop globally.
