Cucumber Dosa

I saw this dosa recipe on a tv channel.The original recipe contained curd, but I modified it a little by avoiding curd and it tasted equally good.This can be an excellent breakfast item.I had prepared these dosas as an evening snack and all my family members loved them :)

Ingredients -
rice flour(1cup)
cumin seeds/jeera
green chillies
coriander leaves

Method -
Wash and grate the cucumber with skin.
Take rice flour in a bowl.Add rava to it.
Add finely chopped chillies,coriander leaves and jeera.
Add salt as per taste.
Put in the grated cucumber and add lots of water.
Let it stand for 15min.
Again add water if required as sooji will soak water.
The batter should be a bit watery.
Heat a non-stick tawa.
Drizzle some oil on it.
Pour a laddle full of batter starting from the edges.(opposite of how you normally make dosas.)
Flip and cook on both sides till crisp.
Hot cucumber dosas are ready to serve :)
