Tomato Dosa

Tomato dosa


I first saw these dosas on Laavanya's blog over a year ago, and what I liked most about the recipe was the fact that the batter was really easy to prepare and did not involve fermentation. I have since been making it very frequently.
These dosas make for a perfect breakfast/brunch over the weekend when you don't feel like doing much, or for that matter, on a busy weeknight when you just can’t!

For Laavanya's recipe, head over to Cookery Corner.

Here's what I did.
Ingredients:
1 cup raw rice, soaked for at least an hour
3 large tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
3-4 red chillies
A few curry leaves
2 Tbsp grated coconut
1 Tbsp tomato paste

Salt to taste

Method:
Grind everything together, adding water as you go along, to get the right consistency for the batter.
Go ahead and make those dosas now! Everyone knows
how to make dosas, right? I have a thing for thin and crispy dosas, so that's how I made mine.

Here are some other dosas I make very often-
Adai
Cornmeal dosa
Jaggery dosa
Plain dosa (instant)

I love this dosa too and your crispy version looks awesome. I love adding chopped onions so can't usually spread it out that thin. Thank you so much for trying this out :)

RAKS KITCHEN said...

I came here to tell you about pesarattu,you know what,when the first time I made even I dint liked much the taste,I felt something raw,but afterwards,I tried adding more of asafetida and onions I mix up with the batter itself and made bit thicker....then I liked,the key is the ingredients like asafetida,onion and green chillies u have to add more,that all! Hope you will like next time:)

These delicate, papery dosas look so lovely, TBC. And the tomato gives such a great color, in addition to a great flavor and health punch. Just beautiful.

Cris! So nice to see you here! How have you been?Dosas are a very popular breakfast preparation in the southern parts of India. I guess you could call it a crepe or a pancake.:D I hope you found something you liked. Do let me know if you need some detailed instructions. I'd be glad to help.:)
