Cucumber Dosa

When I read Shilpa's post about Cucumber Cake, it sounded new to me and wanted to give it a try. I set out to prepare - rice flour ready to be mixed with cucumber in the final step. Just then I realised its one of those days when we donot eat rice !!. With the heap of cucumber staring at me, all I could think of is this quick-fix. Thus a cucumber cake became a Dosa in my plate and you know where to send it :)). Yes this is my entry for WBB #6 'Twist in the Plate' hosted by Nandita of Saffron Trail.

Ingredients :

Cucumber - 1 Medium sized.
Wheat Flour - 2 cups
Chilly Powder


1. Grate the cucumber and set aside.
2. Add the chilly powder, salt along with cucumber to wheat flour and mix well. Set aside for about 30 minutes.
3. This batter will become watery due to the water content in cucumber. This should be like the normal dosa batter. If not add very little water and mix well.
4. Heat a tava over medium heat and spread out the batter evenly. Pour oil over the edges and let it cook. Turn to the other side and cook till its done.
5. Serve hot.
