  1. To remove the bitterness of the cucumber, before grating, cut about 1/4th inch of cucumber from the stem side and rub over the remaining big portion of the cucumber. You will see that froth is forming on the rubbed parts, it means the bitterness is no more. Hope you will try it out and communicate to me.

    Warm regards.

    • yeah.. i remember my mom also doing the same… it helps to remove bitterness.. 🙂 thanks for sharing the tip…
