This is a traditional Dakshina Kannada breakfast during the cucumber season. The kottige or kadubu can be made with cucumber, bottle gourd, ash gourd, pumpkin, sambar cucumber etc. Usually this will be prepared in the afternoon and served next morning. There are two versions of it, sweet or unsweetened. Here is a recipe without sweet/ jaggery. This will taste heavenly with the aroma of the vegetable (cucumber here) and mild aroma of wilted banana leaf. Try and enjoy this healthy breakfast.
