That is an interesting dosa recipe with cucumber. I guess it gives a softness to dosas. They look so yum..
Wow! looks so appetizing. The last time I made these dosas, no one was able to figure out the cucumbers in it 🙂
Dosa and idlis are the best dishes to sneak in veggies. Cucumber dosa is awesome and thanks for giving me some ideas for sep BM. 😉
To tell you the truth I have never tried adding any puree to the dosa batter, though I like the idea. It will definitely make it very flavorful..cucumber and chllies sounds fantastic in a dosa. Will try this recipe the next time I make dosas.
I usually grind the cucumber with the rice . This instant version sounds very easy! And it is definitely a good way to feed veggies to children who otherwise hate them!
like PJ, I too grind the cucumber with soaekd rice and coconut. This version is being bookmarked.. I am (wickedly) thinking I should add lauki in place of cucumber ! Lol !
This is an interesting dosa recipe with cucumber. Looks absolutely delicious and I'm sure it must have tasted amazing.
The cucumber and the chilies would have added such a nice flavor to the dosa. I can't wait to try this with my home grown cucumbers. Love to try some different flavors.

The best way to feed fussy kids with veggies is to sneak them into their favorite food, i too was doing this for quite sometime.
Cucumber dosa looks perfect, must have tasted delicious with all the accompaniments
Wow cucumbers in dosa that’s totally new for me. I am yet to explore Mangalorian cuisine as it seems super interesting.
As a non South Indian, I know only of the common dosa. This is such a lovely way to add veggies to the humble dosa. Love the idea. And it must have tasted really good.
Wow.. looks so finger licking recipe... so perfect and tasty.
It must have tasted amazing with that cucumber flavor. Nice variation to regular dosas.
