Hi again Soumya, what a lovely looking meal! I have two questions if you don't mind :)
Dosa kai - is that the same yellow cucumber dosakaya? I've just discovered that vegetable. Also, can jackfruit papad be purchased, or only homemade? Thanks!

Dr. Soumya Bhat said...

Hi Linda,
Yea you have guessed right.Its the same.You can also purchase the jackfruit papad.

We make dosakai curry but totally different from ur's this looks more interesting and delcious. thanks for sharing.

Manjula said...

Have heard about "huli" many times from my friends in Puttur. Now I know what is is. My mom makes something similar but without jaggery.

Isn't Dosakai same as 'Mangalooru saute kai'? Did you call it Dosakai back in India too?
I heard the name 'dosakai' in the Indian Stores of US at first.

Cool. In andhra we mostly make Dosakai pappu or pickle, I was looking for variety & this turned up.

Also would like recipe for "Lasoon ka katta", when I was in Bangalore I was really fond of this dish my Neighbour used to make, unfortunately I am not able to find a recipe for it.
