Instant tomato dosa
I got this instant tomato dosa recipe from my School moms group friend Archana. She shared few pictures of this instant thakkali dosa and a recorded voice message with recipe in WhatsApp. She suggested me to try and blog this instant dosa variety. Usually I make varieties of instant dosa recipes like wheat flour dosa, jowar dosa, ragi or millet dosa for my dinner. I am happy that I tried this recipe too. Its a very easy and quick instant dosa recipe. This batter can be prepared under 10 minutes.

 With the mild tangy taste of tomato and bright red color, this tomato dosa was so good in taste. It was a super hit in my family. We all loved it. Make the batter watery like neer dosa and rava dosa because consistency of dosa batter is the key to make super crispy and lacy dosa as shown in the picture. You will get it after making one or two dosa and adjust the water quantity accordingly.

This instant tomato dosa tastes the best when served hot with coconut chutney as side dish. It also tasted good even after cooling down. So you can pack for tiffin box if you like. This batter can be refrigerated and use it the next day too. Friends, do try this easy and quick tomato dosa recipe. You will love it for sure.

Note : Below picture was taken at night using the fresh batter. The remaining pictures were taken the next day morning by making dosa with leftover batter.
