This happens to be my hubby’s favourite variety of Dosa…specially when he’s at any Udupi restaurants around here. It’s crispy, crunchy and really flavourful! 👌
We usually make it at home on weekends…as a healthy and filling brunch…paired with my Mom’s spicy & simple coconut chutney. The crispy Dosa goes so well with the earthiness of the this grassy green chutney. Although you can have some potato masala or a spicy sambhar to go with it too. Or even my fiery Schezwan Chutney! 😉
This a really common preparation in most homes…being instant & super easy to make..although, a few ingredients here and there & the proportions may vary…but the results are always mouthwatering! Here’s my take..
For the Dosa
Yield: 4-5 Dosas
Equipment: a non stick pan, a spatula, measuring cups/ spoons, a mixing bowl, a ladle.
1 cup Rawa/ sooji (semolina)
3 tbsp rice flour
1/2 tbsp maida (APF)
salt to taste
1 tsp whole peppercorns
1-2 tbsp chopped cashews
1 tsp chopped curry leaves
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
1/2 tbsp chopped green chilli
1/2 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp asafoetida (hing)
1 tsp Jeera (cumin seeds)
water as needed
oil to cook the Dosa
Take all the dry ingredients in the bowl, stir them well. Then add water and make a runny batter. Let it sit for 5-7 mins.
Heat the pan, and spread a ladleful of the batter on the pan…and drizzle some oil around the pan. Cook on low heat for about 5-6 mins…you need to cook it that long as it will crisp up..and there is no need to flip over to cook the other side. Once done, it starts leaving the pan from the edges. That’s it, your Rawa Dosa is ready! Serve it piping hot😀
(P.S. Stir the batter well before pouring out the next ladleful!)
For the chutney:
It’s really simple… Gives you about a big bowlful.
1 freshly grated coconut, about 1 bunch of coriander leaves, 2-3 green chillies & some salt. Grind these with some water.
Adjust the seasoning. You can temper it if you like..although I usually don’t do it! Done! This chutney stays fresh in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Doesn’t that look absolutely tempting😬😉 they taste so good..
