         Masala Dosa

Masala Dosa is the most favorite breakfast in south India. Masala Dosa wraps around an onion and potato sabzi, side dish can be sambar or chutney.

I use the following proportion for dosa batter, it turns out to a very soft dosa.

Dosa Batter Ingredients:

Urad dal: 3/4 cup

Dosa Rice : 1 cup

Rice : 1 cup

Methi/Fengreek Seeds: 1 tbsp

Poha/Avalakki: 1 tbsp

Soaking Procedure:

1. Wash the above ingredients and soak them together for minimum 4 hours.

2. Grind them to a very fine paste.

3. Cover and keep aside for 6 - 8 hours/overnight.

Masala/Potato Palya:
2 tablespoon oil
2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon urad dal
2 teaspoon channa dal
1 curry leaves
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
5 green chillies, slit lengthwise
1 - inch ginger, finely chopped
500 g potatoes ( boiled with a little turmeric powder )
3 onions, sliced
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a kadai (deep pan). When it is hot enough add mustard seeds. When they start spluttering add urad dal, channa dal, green chillies, curry leaves and chopped ginger. Saute for 2 - 3 minutes (till dals are light brown ).
Add sliced onions. When the onions are light brown in color and turmeric powder and fry well.

Add boiled and mashed potatoes. Add salt to taste and mix well. Cover with a lid and cook on a low heat for 5 - 8 minutes. Remove the green chillies while dosa.

Red Chutney:

Since Masala Dosa procedure is a long process, i just make this very simple. Mix Chutney powder/Chutney Pudi with little oil and water. So that you can spread it on the dosa batter.

Pudina Chutney:

I have already mentioned about pudina chutney recipe. You can get the recipe from Pudina or Mint Chutney.

Masala Dosa Preparation:

Heat a heavy - bottomed wrought iron griddle or non stick dosa pan on a medium heat. Grease with little oil / ghee.

Make the dosa by placing a ladleful  of batter on the centre.

Spread evenly by circular rotations using the base of the ladle, starting from the centre and progressing outwards.

Cover it with a lid and wait for 2 mins in medium flame.

Spread the Red chutney on it.
