Cucumber Dosa Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 04:42:00
Cucumber Dosa is an unique Indian Vegetarian Recipe which used to be prepared through the ages. I got this recipe from my dear grandmother who is no more. Basically, cucumber is very good for health. 90% of the vegetable has water content in it and the best feature of this vegetable is that it has a cooling effect.
If your kids do not like to eat cucumber , you can feed it to them by preparing this dosa. Cucumber can be eaten in any form and one such way is to prepare it in this dosa.

It is an ideal recipe for lunch boxes which would absolutely love for its fragrance. My children love it very much, so I have the confidence in me to share this recipe with the world.

Kitchen Masti Points

While grinding the rice , you can add cucumber water content instead of water which is very beneficial for health.

See to it that the dosa batter does not become too watery , otherwise the dosa will turn out to be very hard. And please remember that this dosa will not be very crispy like other dosa. So, do not expect and try to make the dosa very crispy. In fact , it does not matter if you add only 2 cucumber as I have mentioned in the ingredients list. You can increase the cucumber content and decrease the coconut scrapings also, which would also be a boon for cholesterol patients.
If you desire, you can also add coriander leaves while grinding. Its just another variation.

Cucumber is very useful for diabetic patients., however, jaggery can be omitted from the ingredients for such people.
