Most of us always make extra dosa batter at home to make use of it for different variations with it. I had some left over keema too and I used it for the filling instead of potato masala. It tasted awesome.

How to make dosa batter:
Urad dal .... 1 cup
Rice ........... 3 cups
Methi seeds .... 1 tsp.
Baking soda ... a pinch
Salt ... to taste


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

How to make Keema :
Keema ..... 1/2 Kg. (Mutton or Chicken)
Onions ..... 2 large
Ginger-garlic paste ... 1 tbsp.
Green chillies .. 2 (finely chopped)
Coriander powder ..1tsp.
Jeera powder .......... 1 tsp.
Garam masala ......... 1-2 tsp.
Amchoor powder .... 1 tsp.
Salt ........................... to taste
Red chilli powder ....1/2 tsp.

1. Wash the keema and squeeze out the water completely.
2. In a pan heat a little oil and fry the onions till golden brown.
3. Now add the ginger garlic paste, green chillies and a little water to cook the onion.
4. Add the mince, salt and the dry masalas. Stir fry sprinkling little water from time to time until the keema is cooked to a very dry consistency. Let it cool.( You can sprinkle a little kasoori methi if desired)

To make keema dosa:
1. Spread the dosa batter on the tawa / griddle.
2. Sprinkle some podi evenly on it and spoon the keema.
3. Spoon a little oil or ghee to make the dosa crisp.
4. Roll it and serve hot.
You can serve with chutney or even relish it just with the keema masala.
