Cucumber Dosa

Cucumber Dosa
Great tasting Cucumber Dosa

This dosa variety is very famous in Karnataka. Traditional recipe uses white rice for this dosa, but I substituted white rice with brown rice. This is a super delicious dosa and everyone at our home loved it. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

I am a great dosa lover and posted so many dosa varieties on this blog. Check them all if interested. Here is the link: DOSA VARIEITIES

Now coming to the recipe today:

  • 2 cups Brown Rice
  • ¼ cup whole Urad dal
  • 1 ½ cups Cucumber pieces (Lemon cucumber)
  • Oil to pour around dosas (I didn’t used oil, but used non-stick spray for this purpose)
  • Salt
Cucumber Dosa
  1. Wash and soak brown rice and urad dal separately overnight or 7-8 hours.
  2. Peel and chop cucumber into cubes. Keep aside.
  3. Grind the soaked rice + urad dal into a fine paste along with cucumber pieces.
  4. Add salt and leave aside covered for 1-2 hours.
  5. Note: The batter can be left overnight for fermenting, if desired.
  6. When ready to eat, mix the batter with a spatula and adjust salt if needed.
  7. Heat a non-stick pan. Take a ladleful of batter and pour at the center of the pan. Then immediately spread it into a thin circle.
  8. Pour oil or non-stick spray around dosa and allow cooking. Then flip it over and allow cooking on the other side too.
  9. When it appear to be cooked, remove from the pan and transfer to the serving plate.
  10. Repeat the same process with remaining batter until required amount of dosas are made.
  11. Enjoy these delicious and healthy dosas with desired chutney. We ate ours with Peanut Chutney. 
  12. Yummy!!
