Have this traditional Mangalorean style breakfast this Sunday! Mangalorean cuisine which is collectively called as Tulunadu captures the coastal region of Karnataka. Coconut and Coriander Seeds are most commonly used ingredients in their everyday cooking.
Other than the spices used, they consume a lot of cucumbers in their dishes. A very famous Mangalore cucumber which is a medium sized oval shaped vegetable that has blend of yellow and green layered skin and has a soft and crispy flesh. They are used in dishes like Kadubu, sambar, rotti and neer dosa etc.
In today's breakfast plate, we have added a very authentic recipe from mangalore. It is a steamed Kadubu made from mangalore cucumber and ground rice that is wrapped usually in a banana leaf and then steamed until done.
We have paired the Kadubu along with two different chutney that you can relish it with. The chutneys are simple to make and goes really well with the subtle flavours of the kadubu. Then a warm cup of strong filter coffee will sum up your breakfast meal plate and keeps you active throughout the day.
Gatti is usually prepared using rice, coconut and finely grated squash. You can use any different type of squash like cucumber, white or yellow pumpkin.
