   I am back after a long break. We are blessed with a baby girl. Our bundle of joy is a year old now, needless to say that she keep me on my toes. But I am enjoying everything about being a MOTHER. Now coming back to the recipe.

 Cucumber kadabu is usually made using turmeric leaves, since i could not find turmeric leaves have used banana leaves. The method I have used is a quick version using  rice rava, if you like to prepare from scratch then have to soak rice and grind it to smooth paste and continue with the following method.


Idly Rava 1 cup
Grated Coconut 1/2 cup
Cucumber medium size 1 Grated
Salt to Taste
Jaggery (For the sweet kadubu)
Cardamom powder 1 tsp


1) Clean the banana leaves and cut it to 2 equal parts ( If using frozen, thaw it )

2) In a mixing bowl add all the above ingredients except jaggery and mix well, if needed add little water. The batter should be of the consistency shown in the below picture.

3) Divide the batter to 2 portions( For plain and sweet version).

4) Add jaggery to 1 portion and mix well.

5) Take little amount of this batter and spread it on the banana leaves and fold both the sides of the banana leaves.

6) Place it in a cooker or steamer upside down and steam cook it for 20 mins.

7) Serve with a dollop of ghee/Sambhar and enjoy.
