Vellarikka Dosa

Vellarikka is cucumber in Malayalam… Making dosa or even Idli using cucumber is common in the Southern states of India… It is served either with a coconut chutney or with pickle or thokku…

Method:

250 gms raw rice

1 cucumber deskinned and chopped

5 tbsps grated coconut

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

4 green chillies

1 inch piece of ginger

Salt

Oil for roasting the dosa.

Method:

Soak the rice for around four hours. Drain and grind it along with the chopped cucumber, cumin seeds, ginger and green chillies to a smooth paste. Add enough water to make the batter flow freely. Add salt. Mix well. Heat a skillet. It should be really hot. This ensures that the dosa  gets an evenly porous texture.

Pour a ladleful of batter on the hot skillet and swish it around. Drizzle a tsp of  oil, lower heat and allow the dosa to cook. Remove it as it starts leaving the sides of the skillet. Remove, fold and serve hot.

Note:

This dosa is not flipped over. You can also use rice flour if you are in a hurry. Just pulverise the other ingredients before adding it to the rice flour. Rest of the procedure remains the same.
