It is similar to the Pacha mor kuzhambu in the Tamil brahmin cusinie. I have tried few recipes from Mangalore cuisine, this mangalore cucumber tambli is quite a new recipe to me, shared by my friend.

Mangalore Cucumber seeds tambli is a buttermilk based no cook gravy, with fresh cucumber seeds and other spices, pairs well with plain rice.
    Butter milk  1 and 1/2 cups

Method:

  • Slit the big cucumber into two.
  • Scoop the cucumber seeds from the cucumber. I took one large cucumber.  Teh cucumber you can use for raita. 
  • Check whether it is not bitter, sometimes cucumber will be bitter and will spoil the entire gravy.
  • In a mixie grind the cucumber seeds, along with coconut,black pepper and green chili into a fine paste. 
  • Meanwhile keep the buttermilk ready. I took 1 cup yogurt and whisked it without lumps.
  • Added 1/4 cup of water to this.  
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Strain the ground cucumber seed mixture and add it to the buttermilk. You can add 1/4 cup of water while straining the mixture.
  • The consistency of the tambli will be thin.
  • I tried the tambli both ways, without straining and also in this way. I liked it both the ways.
  • Now temper the mustard seeds, cumin, curry leaves, red chili and asafoetida in coconut oil.
  • Add it to the buttermilk mixture.
  • Mix well.
  • Cucumber seeds tambli is ready to serve.
  • It is generally served with plain hot rice. 
  • We had with rice, thengai thogayal and beetroot curry.
Notes:
  1. Check the cucumber before you proceed, as it may be bitter some times.
  2. The cucumber seeds tambli will be a thin gravy.
