Mullusouthe kottige

Kannada: Mullusouthe kottige/Kadubu

Malayalam: Kakkarikka ilayada


This is a delicious havyaka dish usually prepared for breakfast as well as evening snack using cucumber as the main ingredient. This preparation would be tastier if prepared using banana leaf.

1. Mullusouthe/ Cucumber – 2 cups (finely chopped)

2. White rice – 2 cups.

3. Salt – as required.

4. Banana leaf – as required (optional).


1. Soak white rice for 5-6 hours and grind it by adding required salt to make smooth batter (do not add more water as cucumber leaves water when added to it).

2. Add chopped cucumber to the batter.

3. Spread the batter on one side of banana leaf and fold it by the other so that the batter does not leak, steam cook it in an idli cooker. If banana leaf is not available, then pour the batter in idli plates and steam cook it for about 20-25 minutes.

This can be had with coconut chutney or onion chutney. The above said ingredients serve 2 people.
