Dosa – South Indian Recipe



For Dosa
2 cup: Rice – preferably parboiled
1/2 cup: Split and husked Black Gram (Dhuli Urad) – soaked with rice for 5-6 hours
1/2 tsp: Fenugreek Seeds
Oil to smear the pan for cooking the dosas
2 tsp: Salt

For Masala
500 gm (3 cups): Potatoes – boiled, peeled and cubed
1 1/2 cups: Onions – sliced not very thin
1/4 tsp: Powdered Turmeric
2-3: Green chillies – chopped coarsely (optional)
6-7 : Curry leaves or 1/2 tsp dried curry leaves
2 tbsp: Oil
1 tsp: Mustard seeds
2 tsp: Salt
1/2 cup: Water

Grind daal mixture together to a very smooth consistency. Add salt and enough water to make into a dropping consistency. Leave to ferment for about 5-6 hours, till a little spongy.

If thickened too much, add a little water to thin a bit. Heat tawa, and brush oil over it. When really hot, splash a little water over it, and immediately pour batter onto it, spreading it thin, with a circular motion. This will have to be very swift and will need a bit of practice.

After spreading the batter, lower the heat and dribble a little oil around the edges so that it seeps under the dosa. When edges start browning a bit, pass a flat spoon under it to ease the dosa off the pan.

Put desired filling in the centre and fold the two edges over. Serve accompanied with sambhar and chutney

For the Masala Filling

Heat the oil in a heavy based pan and add the mustard seeds, then onions, curry leaves and green chillies, and sauté over high heat till the onions are a little transparent.

Add the salt and the turmeric and mix well before adding the potatoes. Turn the potatoes around till well mixed and add the water and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.

For Chutney :

1\2 cup grated coconut
2 roasted red chillies
3 green chillies
1\2 tsp. mustard seeds
1\2 tsp. black gram dal (udad)
8-10 curry leaves
1 tsp. oil
1\2 tsp. coriander seeds
a little tamarind (soaked in water)
salt to taste

Grind the coconut, red chillies and tamarind. Add green chillies and coriander seeds while the coconut mix is being ground. Make a fine paste and add a little water.

For the seasoning, splutter udad dal, mustard seeds and curry leaves in hot oil and pour over the chutney.

Add salt to taste and serve with a hot, hot dosa
