Yellow Indian Curry Cucumber Chutney / Dosakay Chutney / Dosakaya Chutney / Instant Dosakaya Chutney / Dosakaya Pacchadi



Blogging after a long hiatus, am back with our family's favorite, yellow Indian cucumber chutney. Yes, its that  round yellow vegetable which was not appreciated by our family and we would skip to buy at the market because of nil knowledge on its cooking and its taste. I wonder, why didn't my mom try with this super ball before! This Indian cucumber was introduced to us by a lady who visited our church in the past. She made a chutney out of it and the family loved it. Since then it has earned its place in our kitchen and family diet. Although this is not the same recipe of hers, I can say surely its a keeper! an upgrade, an easy one!
Point to note : add chillies and salt according to your taste..
