DOSAKAI Indian Cucumber Seeds

Price for Package of 5 seeds.

Dosakai is a small, round yellow cucumber with green overlay and intermittent stripes creating the appearance of sections. As the cucumber matures, the skin becomes a darker yellow and the green patches become smaller. It has a pale yellow to white flesh with small, yellowish edible seeds. Dosakai has a tangy taste, unlike most members of the Cucurbit family where bitterness is the norm; it is sweet and flavorful.

 

Current Facts

The small yellow cucumber, Dosakai is botanically known as Cucumis sativus and is a relative of the common cucumber. Unlike common cucumbers and other Cucurbits, Dosakai doesn’t contain the chemical compound that gives most fruit in this family a bitter taste.

 

Applications

Dosakai is commonly used in Indian Sambar (soup) or Dal referred to as Dosakaya pappu. It is also the key ingredient in Dosakaya pachadi, a chutney made with the yellow cucumber. Dosakai is used to make a delicacy from the state of Andhra Pradesh in southeastern India called Dosa Avakai, which is a pickled dish. The pickling process is quick, and the dish is ready in 24 hours, unlike the traditional Mango pickle of the same region of India which takes a week. Dosakai stores very well after pickling.

 

Geography/History

Dosakai is native to India and the immediate surrounding regions. It is prevalent in southeastern India in Andhra Pradesh, both in gardens and in the kitchen. Dosakai prefers a growing climate with short summers.
