Cucumbers stuffed with a peanut based masala is a handy option that could be served as a salad, snack or an appetizer! Cucumbers are vegetables with high moisture content, and must be consumed regularly. The peanut stuffing is a healthalicious way of adding the nutrition of peanuts as well as their unique taste and texture. Kids love these!

With some planning in advance, you could have your peanut masala prepared beforehand and pronto stuff tomatoes and cucumbers to be served for a weekend get-together!
