I love a delicious sambal with a strong curry, paired with A mind-blowing delicious Cucumber Sambal

I am used to the normal side dishes that normally accompany a curry such as a cucumber raito, patcha chutney, and store-bought beetroot.
When I came across this recipe for a cucumber sambal, I was a bit hesitant, well firstly I have never eaten cucumber by itself with a curry and I was under the impression that it would go dry very quickly, but thank goodness it did not.
The recipe itself is very simple and the results are mind-blowing, the sambal is delicious, tasty and has a cooling effect after a strong curry.
This recipe finally gave me a reason to put my cheesecloth to good use, of course, it did turn my cloth a light shade of green which required a lot of soaking and washing to get it back to bright white, but it was worth it in the end.

This recipe makes a cup full of A mind-blowing delicious Cucumber Sambal salad and can easily serve 4

1 large English cucumber, grated.
2 tbsp. white wine vinegar.
Salt 1 Tsp
Garlic powder 1 Tsp
Green chili, chopped 1.
White sugar 1 Tsp

Place the cucumber in a bowl and sprinkle the salt over.
Give it a good mix and allow to stand for 15 minutes, so that all the water can draw out of the cucumber.
Place the cucumber in the cheesecloth and drain out all the excess water.
Place in the cucumber in a dry dish and add in all the remaining ingredients.
Give it a good toss and it is ready to be served.
