Tomato Dosa - Colorful and Flavourful..
I was instantly impressed when I first saw tomato dosa in Pavithras recipe. I tried it today and it was really refreshing to have a flavoured dosa :)
A big hug and thanks to the Dosa queen for sharing this recipe. :) I have made few variations to suit my taste..
You can serve it as CONE DOSA :)
- This dosa is best eaten while hot as its made only with rice.
-Though ideally this dosa needs to be done from outer to inner, some tavas really dont suit this style. For instance the authentic iron tava that we get in India will be quite hollow towards centre with raised sides. These are ideal to make outer-inner dosas. But unusually my pan here is little raised in the centre and slanting bit down towards edges ;) so when I try outer-inner, all batter still goes towards edges leaving centre empty. So depending upon your pan, use a method that suits.
Raw Rice - 1 Small cup
Medium sized tomatoes - 1 and half (can be more depending on taste preference)
Sour curd - 1 Tbsp (Opt, to give a sour taste)
Cumin - 1/2 sp
Red Chilli - 2 (This adds a bit of color to this dosa)
Green Chilli - 1 or 2
Chopped Ginger - 1 sp
Coriander/Curry leaves - few
Wash well soak raw rice for 3 - 4 hrs. As Pavithra has mentioned, it is advisable to soak in warm water.
Drain and grind along with Tomatoes, sour curd,red chilli,salt adding water as required.
Make a thin batter to get crisp dosas.
Add Cumin, chopped green chilli, coriander, curry leaves. Set aside for 20-30 mins. Add 1 sp of eno fruit salt just before making dosas.
Heat tava well, drizzle oil, pour the dosa from outer to inner , close cook for few seconds, flip and cook other side till crisp.
Serve hot. Spicy Onion chutney / peanut chutney. I love dosas best with sambar made in hotel style :)
