Pert as a pear-monger I’d be,
If Molly were but kind;
Cool as a cucumber could see
The rest of womankind
-New song of new similes John Gay
Yellow Cucumber is plain cool you see. You could add it to lentils, pickle it to enjoy later. Turn it into a dip or a chutney. Or if you are like me eat it raw just as is.
Yellow cucumber or dosa kaya is the Indian variety, which is the rotund cousin of the English cucumber. With a crispy skin and a fleshy interior this cucumber is perfect to take on as many avataars as possible. Warning: sometimes the cucumber can be bitter due to unhappy growing conditions. So take a small bite of your cucumber before starting to cook with it.
