Cucumber Sasive and Sasive Chapati

Cucumber is one of the very low calorie vegetable and no saturated fats or cholesterol. Cucumber peel is a good source of dietary fiber that helps reduce constipation. It is a very good source of potassium. Here I have tried cucumber sasive which  is very famous in Udupi and Dakshina Kannada side. This is one of the side dish and we can have them with chapatis, pooris or rotis and goes very well with plain rice.
I have tried  Masala chapatis using the same sasive and since it contain spice, you can have them with curd.
