Diwali Special - Thekere dosa/cucumber pan cakes

Wish you all a Very Very Happy Diwali....Every Diwali we start our day with oil bath and something sweet. Thekere dosa /Cucumber dosa for breakfast is mandatory in our house.

Have a safe and prosperous Diwali.

  • 1 medium cucumber (remove skin and chop)
  • 1 fist beaten rice
  • 3 cups rice (washed and soaked for 3 hrs)
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup jaggery or to taste
  • 1 tsp salt

  1. Grind cucumber, beaten rice, rice,coconut,jaggery and salt to a fine batter.Use very little water as cucumber already has lot of water content.(the batter should be little thinner that normal dosa batter)
  2. Let the batter ferment for 4 hours.
  3. Pour a ladle full of batter on hot tava and spread it around.Pour a tsp of ghee or butter.Flip over and let the dosa cook for few seconds.
  4. Cucumber dosa tastes best when served with homemade butter.


  1. Trying this today Charishma, I am Mangalorean too but I have never had this in Mangalore....

    Fingers crossed for dosas that look as good as yours!

  2. Do you use regular cucumbers or Moghe? Also is the rice used Dosa rice?

  3. Will try this recipe today. I was looking for thekere da addiyah recipe. I can't seem to find one.
