Rava Cucumber Dosa Recipe

  • Vegan

Rava Cucumber Dosa is an excellent healthy breakfast dish.

  • Serves 4
  • Easy




Rava Cucumber Dosa is an ideal no onion no garlic, vegan dish.

Rava Cucumber Dosa is a great option for breakfast or as an evening snack. Fine semolina (chiroti rava) and lapsi rava (daliya) are the main ingredients. It is very easy to prepare it.

Rava Cucumber Dosa is a South Indian dish. People, normally eat this for breakfast. It is one of the healthiest dishes and very filling. The addition of cucumbers (kakdi) increases the fibre content in the dish and cucumber (kakdi) lends a mild taste and coolness to the dosa. The dosa also contains freshly grated coconut (nariyal). If one does not like cucumbers (kakdi) or coconut (nariyal), you can also omit it.

Laspi rava (daliya) is very nutritious. It is loaded with protein and essential vitamins. Fine semolina (chiroti rava) is high on antioxidents and helps in lowering LDL (bad cholestrol).

So, this dish is ideal for people who want to lose weight, suffering from hypertension, diabetes, high LDL levels, etc. As mentioned above, it is a wonderful choice, when you are fasting or observing no onion no garlic days. After eating it, you do not feel the need to binge on anything else.

Ginger (adrak) and green chillies (hari mirch) are also added to it. It enhances the taste of the dish as rava can be a little bland in taste. You can also omit it, if you do not like it.

All in all, I would say it is worth a try. It is easy, requires no grinding and no fermention. It can also be prepared when you can not think of preparing anything else. Especially during summers, when you do not feel like eating lunch or dinner, this dish is a very healthy alternative.

You can make thin or thick dosas based on your preference.

Finally, like I always say, do share your valuable feedback.

I am also sharing links of other dosas from my blog. Do try these as well and share your thoughts.
