Dosakaya Badithem is a dish from our grand parents.  The main ingredients are yellow cucumber & raw tamarind pods.  For easy understanding, it may be called Dosakaya Chintakaya Pachadi !!

Yellow Cucumber – 1 medium sized
Thick Raw Tamarind Pulusu (Juice) – 3 tbsp
Sesame – 1 ½ tbsp
Dried Coconut – 4 inch piece
Green Chilies – 10
Garlic – ½ bulb
Curry Leaves – 2 twigs
Coriander Leaves – ¼ bunch (Optional)
Oil – 1 tbsp
Salt – to taste

Dosakaya Badithem

Boil raw tamarind pods with a little water & allow it to cool down.
Then extract the juice out of it by kneading & straining.
If the thick juice (Pulusu) is more than needed, it can be refrigerated & used again.
Heat a pan & fry sesame. Take it aside.
Heat ½ teaspoon oil & fry green chilies.
Chop yellow cucumber into medium sized cubes.
Heat a bowl & cook these cubes without adding anything.
Grind sesame, dried coconut, green chilies, garlic and salt adding tamarind juice into a fine paste.
Gently mash the cooked cucumber & the ground paste together using a mortar & pestle.
Or in a bowl, using a paapu gutti, gently mash the cubes & paste together.
Optionally, you can make tadka using all or some of the items from remaining oil, mustard, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, black gram, bengal gram & chopped curry leaves.
Personally, I prefer making tadka only with chopped curry leaves. Add it to the dish.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves & it is ready to be served.
It goes very well with Jowar ki roti (Hindi) / Jonna Rotte (Telugu). Jowar is Sorghum in English.
This dish can be made using Bottle Gourd instead of Yellow Cucumber. Rest of the ingredients remain same. Click here for the recipe.
