I use cucumber in my daily food the reason that it is a vegetable which keeps me away from any urine issue. Since water content in this is 80 % it satisfies the thrust and also able to manage our weight.

Cucumber More Kuzhambu, was very different experience for me because, once this vegetable gets cook gives very different aroma. I learnt this in one of cookery show of Jaya TV. Came out very well.
