  6. Add 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania) Coriander is a fresh herb often used as a flavour enhancer in Indian cooking. It is mainly used as a garnish.

Hello! This is a really good recipe! I think I messed it up a little though. Are you supposed to grate the cucumber with the skin on? Do you leave out the inner part (the part with seeds)? How thin/thick are the pancakes supposed to be? Thanks!
