Cucumber Dosa - खीरा दोसा (Cucumber Crepes)

Hello Friends,


Isn't that name intriguing. I know for some of you it is probably a regular thing, but for me, nuh-uh !!! I loved the fact that it had my favorite cucumber and yogurt and it is as simple as that. 


We loved the taste, texture and everything about it. I am so frequently going to make it now as it is so simple to make. Not, a lot of things to remember. Thanks Kadhyaa Blog for such a wonderful recipe.


Without further ado, here is the recipe.


Cucumber Dosa - खीरा दोसा (Cucumber Crepes)
Ingredients
Rice - 1.5 cups rice
Cucumber - 2 medium ones, peeled and chopped  about 1.5-2 cups
Yogurt - 1/2 cup, preferably sour
Coconut - 1/2 cup, grated
Fenugreek Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Salt - per taste
Oil - to cook dosa/crepes
Preparation

  • Wash and Soak rice for about 8 hours or preferably overnight.
  • Drain it and grind it with the rest of the ingredients (of course except oil).
  • Now, heat a non-stick griddle, brush a little oil.
  • Once it is piping hot, add about 1/4 cup dosa batter (increase or decrease based on your griddle size) and spread in a thin circle.
  • Spray little oil or ghee to cook it till golden on both sides.

Serving
Serve it with your favorite chutney or sambar or a combo of both. Enjoy !!!
