Prologue: Go here.

02/10/2012: Dosakaya Pachadi Mukkalu / Lemon Cucumber Coarse Chutney - The charm of cooking without actually cooking is seen in this dish. Everything raw, yet when put together make a wonderful chutney that can be had with rice, roti or dosa.

Spices for Seasoning - 1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds, 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds, 1/2 tsp Chana Dal, 2 Red Chilies (squished to pieces), 2 to 3 Curry Leaves
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tsps


1) In a blender, put Green Chilis, Cloves, Salt, Tamarind, Putnalu and Coconut Powder. Grind into a fine paste. Add Water as needed.
2) Now add the Dosakaya pieces and one quick turn of the blender, no more than once.
