AFAM, Roundup.

Here comes a huge roudup of A Fruit A Month : Cucumber. I'm really overjoyed with the huge response. Thanx maheswari again, for letting me host one of my favourite fruit. Now i have lots of recipes, so as not to use cucumbers only in salads; but anything and everything, from main course to curries, pickels, smoothies or soup.
The cucumber is a natural diuretic which is used in the fitness world by bodybuilders and people trying to reduce their weight. So use externally for soothing your puffed eyes, or drink its juice to detoxify your body, its good for us. Or have it in so many different ways this summer and stay coooool.
