Very Easy


Number of serving: 6
Cucumber, peeled, de-seeded and chopped - 6 cups

Rice, soaked in water for 1 hour - 3 cups

Salt to taste

Banana Leaves - 6


  • Take the chopped cucumber in a colander and place this colander on top of another container such that the cucumber juice gets collected in the container.
  • Drain all the water from rice.Grind this rice into a coarse batter using very little 1/4 cup cucumber juice collected in the container. Add salt and grind for a minute. Clean the banana leaves with a clean wet cloth.
  • Slowly run each banana leaf above high flame so that the leaf loses its stiffness. Ensure that the entire leaf is run over the flame. This makes it easy for the leaf to be folded.
  • Place the steaming vessel filled with water on high flame. When the water starts boiling, place a banana leaf on a flat surface. Place some batter in the center of a leaf. Fold the longer sides of the leaf.
  • Now fold the remaining two sides of the leaf. Place it in the steaming vessel. Repeat the same for the remaining batter. Steam for an hour and turn off the heat.
  • This is a bland dish; serve it with onion-coconut chutney and for those who like sweet, jaggery syrup.
