Once in a while we all come across guilt pangs of extra eating, too much dessert, too much eating out, too many parties blah blah. Post that the cool off period gets boring at times. Right? Here is something that is not bad for health yet tastes YUMM. Check it out……………

Overnight hang 400g (i used nestle dahi) curd in either muslin cloth or even a large strainer. Water of the curd goes & u r left with a firm, creamy dahi residue.

Chop2mid sized cucumber into tiny cubes as shown in the picture. Add salt and leave it for 15 minutes. Squeeze out as much water as u can from the cucumber.

Mince a clove or two of garlic (according to ur liking for garlic).
Mix together the hung curd, a dash of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, freshly cracked black pepper, minced garlic and salt to taste. Add salt keeping in mind that cucumber already has salt.
U may also add (optional ) chopped mint leaves / dill leaves / parsley.

Make sure u make the sandwich immediately after the spread is ready – in order to avoid soggy sandwiches ( cucumber releases water ). Generously spread this in between two slices of lightly toasted (slightly crisp) sandwich bread. U can also use other breads of ur choice.
