Soak rice in water for about 4-5 hrs. Wash soaked rice 2-3 times and keep it aside.
Peel the cucumber and chop it into small pieces.(Remove the seeds if it is ripen)
Grind soaked rice along with sliced cucumber pieces, grated coconut into smooth paste. Add jaggary and grind it for about 1 min. Add salt and water(if required). (Consistency of the batter should be like that of milkshake.)

If we put coconut oil while cooking it does not taste great...
After cooking if we put 1-2 tsp coconut oil on top of dosa, it tastes great!
For sweet dosas I prefer ghee than coconut oil.
I have the recipe for Southekai Dose in my blog and it tastes great with coconut oil.
