How to Make Thausali (Cucumber Dosa)

  • Wash and soak the rice in water for 1-2 hours.
  • Peel and grate the cucumber.
  • Grind the rice with coconut to a smooth thick paste.
  • It will become thinner when cucumber is added.
  • So avoid adding much water while grinding the rice.
  • Mix in grated cucumber and salt.
  • The consistency of the batter should be like thin pouring cream.
  • Add water if needed.
  • Heat a non-stick fry pan and pour about 1/2 cup of batter on it and spread it with the back of a ladle or Katori to a disc of about 2 mm thick.
  • Pour a tsp of oil all round it.
  • When the underside is cooked, turn the dosa over and pour some more oil to cook the other side.
  • Lift off the pan and serve hot with Chutney.
  • Use all the batter thus.
  • Variation: Sweet Thausalis may be prepared as above.
  • Reduce the salt to a pinch and add 1/4 cup sugar or jaggery to the batter.
