dosa avakaya(cucumber chutney)

we have so many types of dosakaya chutneys.this is the basic one. very soon i will come up with other type of chutneys too.

  • 1 medium size cucumber(dosakaya)
  • 2 Tbls red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds powder
  • 2 Tbls oil
  • salt to taste
  • pinch of hing
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds and cumin seeds for tempering
    cut the cucumber into small pieces (1/2 inch size).
    take a glass or ceramic bowl add red chilli powder,mustard seeds powder,salt mix well.then add 1 1/2 Tbls oil to that mixture and mix well.
    add cucumber pieces to that mixture. and take a pan heat the remaining 1/2 Tbls oil and crackle the mustard and cumin seeds and let it cool down then add it to cucumber mixture.
    it may look like dry but after 5 to 6 hours it oozes out oil. after a day keep it refrigerate because cucumber pieces observes too much salt.
