Dosas Galore

I wanted to try something new and send it to Dosa event, but i could not do it due to some unexpected personal work. I dont want to miss this event though since i love dosas. Who can resist dosas? :)

Plain Dosa :
Urad daal - 1 cup
Idli Rice - 4 cups (I use grinder, if you don't have grinder reduce it to 3 cups)
Fenugreek seeds - 1 spoon





Method :


Wash and rinse rice and daal with methi seeds separately and soak them for a minimum of 6 hours. Grind the urad daal and methi first with little water till it gets fluffy. Remove and grind the rice with some water. The batter should be thick but need not be as thick as idli batter. Let it ferment overnight. If the daal and rice are soaked long enough there is no need to keep the batter in a preheated oven.


Heat the dosa griddle/tava and spread 1 ladle of batter into a circle. Spread it very thin to get crispy yummy dosa. Spread some oil around it and when it is almost cooked on one side, flip the dosa and cook for another minute or more to get crispier texture. Repeat procedure. Enjoy! :)


To make cone dosas for kids, once you spread the batter and it is almost cooked on one side, make a slit from the center and flip the dosa and cook for one more minute. When it ready, just roll it from the slit and make a cone. My kids love the cone dosa :) I also make alphabets, shapes or draw lightning mcqueen or elephants out of dosa batter. Sometimes they look horrible and my first son gets a big kick out of it when he sees my horrible artwork. He thinks it's too funny and forgets about making a fuss :) Here's my elephant dosa..this pic was taken in my old mobile so the picture quality is quite bad.


Here are the other dosas from archive :
