Cucumber Neer Dosa

Starting your Sunday morning or any morning with dosas just off the tawa, sounds like a great idea. But want to try making a different kind of dosa? So here it is, cucumber neer dosa or southekayi neer dosa. Lacy, soft cucumber neer dosa speckled with light green cucumber not only sounds nice but also looks and tastes great!
You can soak rice overnight or just for 4-5 hours. Then you can grind rice with the remaining ingredients and then immediately make dosas. You can also keep the batter overnight/or few hours to lightly ferment and then make cucumber neer dosa. Either way they are delicious. The last time I made them I served them with sorekayi saasme but you can serve with any chutney!

This will have a slightly different taste compared to neer dosa which will have a dominant coconut taste. In cucumber neer dosa you can taste the cucumber definitely! A similar kind of dosa with same texture is this sorekayi dosa recipe. My mouth has started watering, I shall go and soak rice and I must have half a cucumber lying in my refrigerator. Off I go to find that cucumber! Meanwhile here’s the cucumber neer dosa recipe.
