No Ferment Instant Cucumber Dosa ~ 101 Dosa Varieties!

Instant Cucumber Dosa

No Ferment Instant Cucumber Dosa is a popular Dosa from Karnataka, that you can make instantly with cucumber for a quick breakfast!

Today’s recipe is a Dosa or a Crepe made with Cucumber along with Rice and Rava. This is an instant dosa and has a texture of almost a thin crepe. The basic batter is just plain cucumber with rice, you can always improvise on this by adding vegetables and making a stuffed dosa.

When I was making the batter, Hubby Dear was around and was shocked that I was going to be making a cucumber Dosa. I said this is supposed to be a popular Karnataka breakfast and is healthy. I made both the Spicy Vegetable Oats Dosa and this one the same morning. I got about 6 dosas of each and we were able to have only 1 each. Even Amma said the same that 1 each was really heavy.

Anyway, Hubby dear had the Oats dosa first and said he couldn’t find the cucumber smell or taste. I said he had to taste the other green dosa. After the first bite, you can’t find the cucumber presence and it tastes really good with coconut chutney.

I would really pick this dosa when I have excess cucumber on hand and need a quick breakfast! This is for the BM#82, Week 3 on Crepes for all time! I hope you are enjoying the first two days, for the third day I have some really interesting one, so come back tomorrow to check it out!
