MASALA DOSA


I think dosa needs no introduction.. It is the most popular South Indian dish loved by one and all.

DOSA
Ingredients:
Urad dal .... 1 cup
Rice ........... 3 cups
Methi seeds .... 1 tsp.
Baking soda ... a pinch
Salt ... to taste
Oil.

Method:


1. Soak dal and rice separately for at least 5-6 hours.Add methi seeds while soaking.
2. Grind them separately adding enough water to a smooth batter. Mix them well, adding salt and leave to ferment preferably over night.

3. Just before making dosas mix the baking soda. Spread a ladle full of batter on a hot griddle and make dosas.

4. Sprinkle a little podi and spread a little masala on each dosa. Apply a little ghee or oil to make it crisp.

Masala:


Potatoes.... 4-5
Onions ... 2
Green chillies ... 2-3
Ginger ....... 1 tsp. grated
Curry leaves ... a sprig
Coriander leaves ... handful
mustard seeds... 1 tsp.
Cumin seeds ... 1 tsp.
Asafoetida ...... a pinch
Urad dal or chana dal ... 1 tsp.
Turmeric powder ... 1/8 tsp.
Salt .... to taste
Oil
Method:
1. Boil and peel the potatoes. Cut into cubes.
2. Slice the onions and green chillies.

3. Heat a little oil and add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad dal and asafoetida. When the seeds crackle, put the sliced onions, green chillies, curry leaves and grated ginger. Saute for a minute.


4. Now put the potatoes, salt and turmeric. Mix and sprinkle a little water and simmer until done. Break/mash the potatoes a bit while stirring to blend with the onion masala.

Garnish with coriander leaves.

  9. Its like u read my mind...I've been craving for some masala dosa lately. I donno, no matter how carefully i try to prepare the dosa very thin, it still turns out slightly thick, so I never get that crunchy dosa...
    I guess I'll just eat it from some restaurant first to satisfy my craving and then definitely try out your steps :-)
