Konkani Randap: Sweet Dosa | Gandarli | Surnali | Goda Polo

Surnali is a traditional breakfast dish among konkanis. It is a Konkani version of Pancake. Jaggery is called ‘GoD’ in Konkani. The dosa is called as ‘Gandarli’ in North Kanara Konkani and ‘Surnali’ in South Kanara Konkani. This is usually prepared with managalore Cucumber (magge in Konkani). Even the normal green cucumber can be used instead of Mangalore Cucumber. This sweetish and tangy dosa tastes yummy when served with delicious ghee.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes for one dosa. Soaking rice overnight.

Servings: 4

  • 1 cup Dosa Rice
  • 1 cup Cucumber(magge/taushe)
  • 1/2 cup grated Coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds (methi seeds)
  • 1/4 cup Avalakki (Poha/phovu)
  • 3/4 cup Jaggery
  • Salt for taste
  • Cut cucumber(magge/taushe) in small cubes.
  • Mix cucumber, fenugreek seeds and rice nicely and keep it aside for 1-2 hrs. Don’t use water to soak.
  • Grind together coconut, cucumber and rice.
  • Soak poha for 5 minutes, squeeze out the water and add to the mix.
  • Continue grinding to a smooth paste.  Keep the batter as thick as possible.
  • When the batter is smooth, add powdered jaggery  and continue to grind until it is well blended.
  • Keep it overnight.

  • Add salt. Beat and mix well. 
  • Make dosas (like uttappa, this dosa is thicker than normal dosa).
  • Cover the pancake and cook on low flame till the upper side gets holes and no signs of any raw batter on the top. The lower side of the Surnali should be light golden brown, take care not to blacken it.
  • Serve hot with Ghee.
PS:  Don’t use water for soaking. Cucumber when mixed with rice, leaves water which is more than sufficient for the rice to get soaked. Take care not to make it salty, as the jaggery has a little salt in it.
