Cucumber’s crush

Ever wonder what the result would be if the humble cucumber had a crush on the snobbish grape? Hmm…perhaps it would be this super healthful drink which is just perfect for the Indian summers. Health benefits apart, trust me, this one makes for a super tasty beverage.

  2. 2 cups green grapes/ around 250 gms
  3. 2 tbsp fresh mint leaves, chopped
  4. ½ tsp pepper powder
  5. ¼ tsp black rock salt
  6. ¼ tsp chilli flakes (optional)
  7. 2 tsp sugar (or according to taste and sourness of the grapes)


  1. Blitz the cucumber, grapes, mint, chilli flakes and sugar together in a blender.
  2. Strain the pulp and add the salt and pepper.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
