Tausalli/cucumber idli

I couldve sworn I had posted about this before, but I cant find it. A sudden craving struck tonight and tried to look up exactly what I have done before, but not to be found.

I guess it was something like this:

2c cucumber or pumpkin grated with pinch of salt
1c rava roasted in tsp of ghee
1/2c jaggery grated
pinch of cardamom
coconut grated

Mix and keep aside for 30 min till it becomes wet. Steam 10 mins.
