Vendhaya Dosa Recipe With Poondu Chutney - Breakfast Recipes

Print Friendly and PDF
Yum

vendhaya - dosa

We make this dosa at least once in a month.This is very good for health.It reduces the body heat and good for stomach ulcer & diabetes.I learnt this recipe from my MIL and i made it yesterday.It was crispy , spongy and tasted great.Poondu molaapdi is the best combination for this dosa.I have tasted this dosa with sambar,chutney , korma etc.But nothing can beat this poondu molaapdi..U can have this dosa with coconut milk or milk mixed with jaggery syrup.I used to have 2 dosas with milk and 2 dosas with molaapdi :) It may resemble like aapam, but it tastes different. Usually it is made thick like uttapam but my husband likes it crispy. So i make thick ones for me & crispy for my husband. It tastes & comes out great in either ways!

POONDU MOLAPDI / GARLIC CHUTNEY

POONDU MOLAAPDI
INGREDIENTS
  • Garlic – 1 bulb or 15 flakes.
  • Red chilly – 5 -7 nos
  • Grated Coconut – 1 tbsp (For spice lovers , this is Optional .I usually add  to reduce the spice.)
  • Salt – as needed.
  • Oil – 1 tsp

METHOD
How to grind:
  • Peel the garlic and keep it aside.
  • Heat a kadai with oil and roast the red chillies till it turns dark brown.
  • Now grind the garlic flakes,roasted red chillies , grated coconut with the required salt. Please don’t add water. This chutney should be coarse..
  • Remove and Keep it in the serving bowl.

Serve with this dosa by adding sesame oil.This molapdi stays good even for 10 days when refrigerated and it tastes good with dosa & idli too

  30. It is mentioned that 500mg of fenugreek seeds to be taken daily, i thingk it is wrong. May be it is 50mg. per day - for lowering blood sugar and pressure. In my home my mother always used to cook with fenugreek seeds, perungayam wherever needed. The health benefits are so many and it adds good flavour and taste to the foods. We are really gifted by the God with such rare herbs which are used as food and with best medicinal qualities for our health. Our (south) Indian kitchens are seemingly having really meaningful spices for food preparation and good health. I can say that if one is maintaining good food practices (i.e., limited intake) even if it is a favorite food or tastier one, should not go for full stomach of food and must eat in time and only after digestion of the previous food. i mean, only after feeling hungry one should take further food. that also to be half stomach food will help to avoid obesity, pressure and any other health problems.
