Savory Mini Pancakes | Southekai Guliyappa

Cucumber paddu is a breakfast or perfect evening snack item. Savoury and tastes amazing. It can be prepared instantly. No soda/fruit salt required, which makes it a healthy option too.

It is also a great breakfast or snack option for toddlers. Just skip green chillies and garam masala if you are making it for your little ones. I love the flavour of cucumber in cooked dishes. If you are looking to prepare dishes using cucumber, check this out – cucumber dosa , Sweet Paddu.
