Kumbalakayi Dose

1/8th part of medium sized Ash Pumpkin / Budu Kumbalakayi or 2 cups of chopped Ash Gourd
1 cup White Rice
Salt to taste


Soak rice in water for about 4-5 hrs. Wash soaked rice 2-3 times and keep it aside.
Peel the ash pumpkin, remove the seeds and chop it into small pieces as shown in the picture.

Grind soaked rice along with sliced ash pumpkin pieces into smooth paste. Add salt and water(if required). (Consistency of the batter should be like that of milkshake.)

Heat the Tava(Iron Tava preferred). Pour a spoonful of batter at the centre, spread it with the back of the spoon to a thin round. Add 1 tsp of oil/ghee on top of dosa, cover it in a lid and cook it for a minute in medium flame. Cook other side of the dosa as well for about 1 min.

Serve hot with any chutney or sambar. The ingredients mentioned above will serve 6-8 Kumbalakayi Dosas.

Hi Ranjeetha,
Thanks for trying.
Yeah you can prepare same kind of dosas from Bottlegourd, cucumber, watermelon rind as well.
I like cucumber and kumbalakayi dosa more.
Here is the link for all the 3 types of dosas.
