• 1 medium-sized cucumber
  • 3/4 cup semolina
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • A bunch of coriander leaves
  • 5 strands of cilantro, chopped
  • 3 green chilis, chopped
  • Salt, to taste
  • Vegetable oil


  1. Wash and grate the cucumber.
  2. Add the semolina, green chilis, sugar, salt to taste, and coriander leaves. Mix well.
  3. The water of the cucumber is sufficient for the batter, but if you feel it’s very dry then add little water. The batter should be thick, not runny.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add a ladle of batter and spread it evenly with your fingers to form a medium-thick dosa.
  5. Drizzle oil around the pancakes. Cover the pan with a lid and cook on medium flame.
  6. Once the dosa starts becoming golden brown, flip, drizzle some more oil, and cook on the other side until it is roasted and golden brown in color.
  7. Repeat the process for the remaining batter.
  8. Serve hot
