Soutekayi dose recipe - how to make cucumber dosa - breakfast recipe

Soutekayi dose recipe - Cucumber dosa is a healthy dosa prepared with rice, coconut and cucumber. This is a very easy to prepare dosa, which imparts the mixed flavor of cucumber and coconut. My mother was making it using large sized green cucumber grown in the back yard of our house.  But, here I don't get that variety. I  have used small variety of cucumber, which is also flavorful and there is not much difference between the two. The batter for this dosa doesn't need fermentation. It can be used immediately after grinding. The left over batter can be stored in the refrigerator for two days. This dosa is usually served with liquid jaggery and coconut chutney. Note that do not add water while grinding. The cucumber itself has lots of water content. If the batter is too dry then add water.
