Cucumber salad (South indian style)

This is crunchy and spicy salad. Just takes few minutes to make it.

1 cucumber grated
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp channa dal
1 tsp oil
1 sprig curry leaves
1 tbsp grated coconut
1/4 tsp salt
2 dry red chillies

In a small pan heat oil, add mustard seeds. When they stop spluttering, add channa dal, red chillies, curry leaves and saute it till the channa dal starts turning brown. Add this "tadka" to the grated cucumber. Now add salt and coconut. Mix well and serve.
