Cucumber Stir fry

Cucumber is something almost everybody likes eating raw as such or in salads.Recently I tried this stir fry and was a hit at home.My hubby at first was in the impression that why do I need to cook this when all (kids mainly) are eating this raw without any fuss.Actually Once I had seen my Muthumma(Grandma's big sister) cooking this to make it soft and easy to chew for elderly people and the very little ones with their rice.I just modified it adding chillies and grated coconut and spluttered  mustard seeds and made into a stir fry.

Cucumber          1 medium(peeled and cubed)
Onion                 1/2 of 1(medium chopped)
Green chilly        2-3 slit
Turmeric powder  1/4 tsp
Grated coconut    3 tbsp
Salt                  as needed
Mustard seeds      1/4 tsp
Oil                     2 tsp
-Heat a wok and add oil.
-Add the mustard seeds and when splutters add the cucumber,chillies,turmeric powder and onion.Mix well and keep covered for two minutes.
-Open the lid and when the water reduces add salt and the grated coconut.Mix by stirring and switch off the flame.
-Serve with rice and curry.
