Intro: Raw Cucumber-Carrot Noodles With Tropical Sauce
Super Healthy, light, Refreshing and a Raw recipe.... Cucumbers helps you to beat the heat as it has high water content and low in calories. The Orange and Coconut Sauce gives a refreshing tropical feel.
A spiralizer or a Mandoline slicer can be used to get the noodle shape... But as I don't have them I have tried to get the noodle string with the help of a Vegetable peeler.
Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients
Cucumber - 2
Carrot - 1
Orange - 1
Grated Coconut - 1/2 Cup
Salt as desired
Pepper - 1/2 Tsp
Capsicum (chopped) - 2 Tsp
Tomato (chopped) - 2 Tbsp
Green chilli (chopped) - 1/2 Tsp
Pomegranate - 2 Tbsp
Garlic (crushed) - 3
Onion (chopped) - 1 Tbsp
Step 2: Noodles With Vegetable Peeler
To get string of noodles from Cucumber and Carrot create slits with knife longitudinally. Make slits of the desire width of the noodle. After peeling one side rotate cucumber/Carrot a quarter turn and continue making slits and peeling and rotating until left with nothing but core. With help of peeler just peel through Be careful of your hands.
You can use Spiralizer or mandolins.
Step 3: Orange Juice
Remove the seeds and blend the orange with a Blender. Strain the puree to get the juice of the orange.
Step 4: Prepare the Sauce
To the Orange juice add grated coconut, Salt and Pepper in the mixer. Grind it in the Mixer to form a Saucy texture.
