A Tasty, Healthy and Easy Breakfast Recipe.cucumber-rotti

I used the long tender Green Cucumbers for this dish…. I wasn’t sure, if the onions and cucumber would give a good taste, hence I just tried out with the cucumber alone…….. 🙂 May be I should give it a try sometime soon with onion and cucumber combination……!!!


Cucumber – 1

Rice Flour – 2 cups

Grated Coconut – 1/2 cup

Green Chilli Paste – 1 tsp

Coriander leaves  / Cilantro – Chopped – Handfull

Oil – 2 tbsp

Salt – as per taste

Hing / Asafoetida  – A Pinch

Butter – Garnishing taste


Peel the skin, Remove the seeds of the cucumber and then grate them.

Now, Mix all the above ingredients, except butter and oil, to form a dough. Since the cucumber is a water content, never add water. Leave the dough, for about 10-15 minutes to set well….

Divide the dough into equal proportions and form an orange sized dough.

Meanwhile, smear the griddle with 1 tsp of oil. Pat the dough on the griddle, with your fingers to form a flat, thin circle.Pour 1/2 tsp oil around teh edges of the circled dough. Cover it with a lid, and cook with medium flame.cucumber-rotti-preparation

When it turns golden brown on the bottom side, flip it and cook the same way on the other side, till it turns golden brown.

Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough balls.

Serve HOT with a dollop of butter on it and a chutney of your choice or a pickle or a Eggplant palya tastes much better.
