Today I am going to share refreshing and healthy “Cucumber Rolls” recipe. These cucumber rolls are quick and easy to make. They make for a wonderful appetiser or even salad bites.
These cucumber rolls look so fresh and make for a light healthy snack in summers. I have used here hung curd (yoghurt) seasoned with salt and black pepper inside the cucumber rolls that give it a creamy texture as well as act as binding agent. Pomegranate seeds in this recipe add colour and zing to the recipe. It is a no oil and fireless recipe .
Cucumber is very healthy especially in summers. It keeps the body hydrated, flushes toxins and nourishes the body with essential minerals. It is very good option for people who are on weight loss regime as it satisfies the hunger without loading calories.
For making these cucumber rolls, you would require cucumbers as shown below. They should not be bitter at all. As we are going to use the peel also in this salad recipe, if the cucumber is bitter it’s peel would also be bitter. The cucumber should be straight in shape which will help us in getting even straight slices.
Don’t make them much in advance as otherwise they would leave water and become soggy. Fold them when you are just about to serve.
Hope you would like this simple nutritious Cucumber rolls recipe!!
List Of Ingredients: (Makes 10-12 pieces)
- Long Cucumbers – 2
- Hung curd- 1/4 cup
- Black pepper-1/4 tsp
- Salt- To taste
- Pomegranate seeds- 1/4 cup
Steps to Prepare:
Wash the cucumbers thoroughly. Cut the bottom and top part of cucumber to give it cylindrical shape.
Peel the cucumber twice from just one side as shown below. This will remove the peel and give a flat surface to it.
Using a slicer, peeler or knife, make thin long slices of cucumbers. As shown below, keep the peeled side facing the blade. I have used here 4 in 1 Slicer and Grater (buy here).
Keep it one by one on a plate.
Mix hung curd, salt and black pepper in a bowl. Spread the mixture on all cucumber slices.
Roll the cucumbers gently using your fingers. Don’t put too much pressure on it while rolling.
Arrange rolled cucumber rolls on a plate. Garnish it with fresh pomegranate seeds.
If you want you can sprinkle some chaat masala. Also, you may brush a mix of lemon juice and olive oil for making them look fresh for longer time. Fresh and healthy cucumber hung curd rolls are ready!! 🙂
