A South Indian dish, popular especially in Karnataka, Tousali refers to pancakes that invariably combine rice, coconut and cucumber.

This peppy version adds a few tablespoons of curds and green chillies to the batter, making a really lip-smacking Spicy Tousali! Serve it with coconut chutney.

Yummy tousali, this recipe is different, and yet very tasty and easy to make. The flavour of the cucumber is very refreshing with a spicy touch of the chillies..
