Dosakai is strange! Why would we say that? Well, it is classified as a fruit but eaten and cooked like a vegetable! It is known as a Yellow Indian Cucumber – don’t think it looks or tastes like a cucumber! Yes, when we said strange, we meant strange. This Yellow Indian Cucumber is used in pickle, Curries, Daals, alongside Meats and Seafood. It has a tangy and a tart-ish flavor that makes it perfect for pickles. Enjoy this confused and delicious pickle :)
