TOMATO DOSA
I learnt this from my friend Shalini…I tried last week and it came out very well.It was crispy , tasty and we liked it very much..I’ve gone through so many varieties of tomato dosa on net.Here comes my version..


Ingredients
1 cup - 200ml
  • Raw rice – 1 cup
  • Tomato – 4-5 nos
  • Red chilly – 5-7 nos (adjust to our taste)
  • Hing/Asafetida – 1/4 tsp
  • Salt & water – as needed
To Temper:
  • Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Curry leaves – a sprig
  • Oil – 1 tsp
Method:
  • Wash and soak the rice for 2 hours.
  • Grind the tomato,red chilly,hing along with salt to make a puree.
  • Then add the rice and grind it like a dosa batter..
  • The batter should be loose and slightly watery..So add the water accordingly..
  • Heat a kadai with oil and temper with mustard seeds and curry leaves.
  • Add to the batter and mix well.Check for salt..
  • Now heat a dosa tawa greased with oil and pour the batter in a circular manner from outwards to inwards..
  • Pour little oil around the dosa if desired.. 
  • Serve hot with coconut chutney!!
COCONUT CHUTNEY

Ingredients
To Grind:
  • Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
  • Green chilly – 2-3 nos
  • Ginger – A small piece
  • Salt & water – as needed.
To temper:
  • Mustard – 1/4 tsp
  • Urad dal – 1/4 tsp
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Oil – 1 tsp
Method :
  • Grind all the items given under to grind to make a smooth paste and temper it..
Note : This dosa can be prepared instantly..No need for the batter to ferment..But i made the batter 3 hours before preparing dosa

    1. Thank u so much Divya for ur feedback. I am so glad u like it.. For this dosa , I used Good quality raw rice which we use for making pongal Or Dosa rice would do..But i have not used idli rice or maavu arisi.. I think if u use idli rice or maavu arisi , the dosa may be little hard and looks dry. Please try with goood quality raw rice for the above result..Please leave ur feedback if u try :) Thanks .
