Cucumber Salad (Method 3)

Our family members are big fans of cucumber.  I buy it every week. We do Salad or simply eat it on its own. This is the 3rd method. Other 2 I have posted earlier. One with peanut and other one with yogurt. This one is with flavour of buttermilk chilli. This is very flavourful one that goes well with all the rice. It is quite refreshing too. I eat this just as snack.
