You guys must have already guessed that I love dosas. There are so many varieties to try. This recipe I tried from Pratibha’s blog is really yummy. I am writing the recipe here but if you want to go to the source you are more than welcome to.
1/2 cup Wheat flour
1/4 cup Rice flour
2 tbsp fine chiroti Rava(or regular rava)
1 1/2 cups Water(see notes)
1/2 tsp Green chili paste
2 tbsp chopped Coriander leaves
1 tsp Cumin seeds
Salt to taste
Oil,to roast dosas
- Mix wheat flour with rava,rice flour and add 1 1/2 cups of water to it and mix until no lumps are formed.
- The batter should be thin enough to pour it over the pan,it should not have spreading consistency.Keep this aside for 5-10 mins.
- Pour a ladle full of dosa batter from the outward base of the hot tawa in a circular motion to the center,fill the major gaps in between.But do not try to fill all the small gaps,those gaps helps in making the dosa more crispier.This is a very important step in making these kind of oats dosa.The crispyness depends on the way you pour the batter on the tava and the flame you manage while cooking the dosa.
- Pour 1 tbsp oil approx over it and cover it with a lid.(No need to add more oil if using Non stick pan).
- Let it initially cook on medium flame for 1-2 mins and remove the lid and increase the flame later and cook for another 2 mins until you see brown/red patches.(No need to turn the dosa).But do not try to remove the dosa in between while it is roasting.We should remove it only when you are sure that the dosa is perfectly roasted.
- Remove it from the pan and serve it directly and do not drop them in hot boxes.It should be served on to the plate immediately to enjoy the flavor and crispiness of the dosa.
- Reduce the flame for one minute and start prepare the next dosa.Do not pour the batter on high flame.Always stir the batter before preparing the next dosas.
- I served it with peanut chutney and it was very delicious. Try it for yourself and see.
