Dosakaya Pappu -- Dal with Yellow Cucumber -- Yellow Cucumber Dal Recipe

Dosakaya or Yellow Cucumber is a very healthy vegetable we can make different varities with it like pappu, pulusu, pickle and chutney. It is good for digestion. Yellow Cucumber tastes a bit sour, some times they come in bitter taste also.  Do not use the bitter ones, throw them.
Today I am giving how to make dal with them. A simple and easy dish to make. It tastes very nice and can consumed with rice. It requires very less ingredients and also less time to cook.


Yellow Cucumber/Dosakaya - 1
Toor Dal/Lentil - 1/2 cup
Green Chillies - 1 
Salt - to taste
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - 5 to 7
Coriander Leaves - fist full

For Tadka:

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Red Chilli - 1 
Asafoetida Powder - 1 tsp


Pressure Cook toor dal for three whistles. Once it gets cool, mash the dal with a laddle and keep a side. 
Peel and cut yellow cucumber into cubes.
Heat oil in a pressure pan, add all the ingredients under 'For Tadka'. Once they start spluttering add the yellow cucumber and green chillies.
