Recipe for Cucumber Savory Dosa
- Raw rice- 1 cup
- Grated coconut- 1 cup
- Tender cucumber- 2 to 3 nos.
- Cumin seeds- 1 tsp
- Green chillies- 3 nos.
- Salt- 1 tsp
Wash the soak raw rice in enough water for about 1 to 2 hours.
Rinse the soaked rice once again and put it in a mixer jar. Add coconut and green chillies too. Grind everything together to fine batter adding little water for ease of grinding. Transfer it to a wide bowl.
When the batter is ready, cut the cucumber in to half vertically. Scoop out all the seeds from it. Then grate this cucumber rind using a grater.
Now combine grated cucumber and cumin seeds with batter in the bowl. Now adjust consistency of the batter by adding some water. You should be able to pour and spread the batter on griddle.(No fermentation required).
Heat a dosa griddle smearing little oil on it. When it is hot enough, pour a ladle full of dosa batter and spread it with the back of ladle in circular motion. When one side is cooked to golden brown, using a flat ladle loosen and remove it from griddle. Repeat the process with rest of the batter.
Cucumber savory dosa is ready to serve with green chutney and tiffin sambar.
Do not add too much water while grinding the soaked rice because when combined with cucumber the batter becomes thin. You can adjust consistency later by adding water only if needed.
Choose tender and bitter-less cucumber for this dosa. You can peel the skin off too, but l like cucumber with skin. It makes the dosa colorful as well.
I have used my iron griddle for making dosa, you can use non-stick too.
Cook the dosa in medium flame and it’s not necessary to cook the other side.
You can relish it with any side dishes of your choice.
