I had guests coming to my home so cooked plain dal for sambar and dal . Then I added the dosakai pieces and taste was awesome.  You can cook  dosakai and dal together in cooker also.

Toor Dal  1/2 cup

Mustard seeds  1/2 teaspoon
Red Chilli  2 
Hing 2 pinches

Curry Leaves 6 to 8

1. Wash the dal and put the dal in the pressure cooker or a pan. After it is cooked keep it aside. Cut cucumber and garlic into pieces. Taste the cucumber  and seeds some times the seeds are bitter then discard them.

2. Heat a pan add oil after oil is hot add urad dal,  mustard seeds, red chillies, garlic pieces, curry leaves and hing.  When mustard seeds spulter and dal changes to golden color . Add the dosakai pieces and keep stiring until they are soft and cooked . This takes about 5 to 10 minutes in medium flame.
