Smoked trout, cucumber and coconut salad with dosai

There are many varieties of dosa, and most require the batter to ferment overnight. We've adapted a godhuma dosa recipe because these require no fermentation, making them ideal for speedy dinners. For a super-fast meal, you could buy ready-made dosai or roti from select Asian grocers.


  • 400 gm smoked trout, coarsely flaked, bones removed
  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, halved, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups (loosely packed) coriander
  • 25 gm shredded coconut
  • ½ Spanish onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, thinly sliced, plus extra to serve
  • Juice of 1½ limes
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • To serve: cos leaves (optional)
Green chilli dosai
  • 160 gm wholemeal flour (1 cup)
  • 50 gm rice flour (¼ cup)
  • 15 gm ginger, finely grated (3cm piece)
  • 1 long green chilli, finely chopped
