Cucumber Recipes. Indian Cucumber Recipes. Cucumber is a specie of fruit that is used as a vegetable. It is a long cylindrical vegetable that is mostly made up of water. Even though originally from South Asia, they are now grown all over the world. Cucumbers have many varieties and are mostly eaten in 2 forms – raw and pickled.

This kachumber can be sprinkled over fried papad to make the crunchy Masala Papad.
