33 TOMATO DOSA AND AN AWARD

Tomato Dosa


Got this recipe from Pavithra . Being a dosa lover and trying a variety of tiffin items wanted to try her method immediately( on the same day for dinner). Her variation was very different than mine and also instant. Usually I used to grind the tomatoes with a small piece of ginger, cumin seeds and fennel seeds. Then mix it with the fermented dosa batter and prepare dosas immediately. This time I tried her method with very little minor changes, that is added 1/2 tsp of fennel seeds and used two types of rice together. It came out too good and hubby dear too had some extra dosa's. Will definitely try this method again sometime (many times) :D

I am posting the recipe again for future reference. You can also check here recipe here :)


Rice - 1 cup ( I used half of raw rice(sona masoori) and half of boiled rice(idli/ponni boiled rice)
Tomato - 2 nice ripe and tangy ones
Red chillies - 3 or 4
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
Coconut grated - 1/4 cup
Salt as needed
Oil for spraying

For tempering:
Mustard seeds - few
Hing - a pinch
Curry leaves - few
Oil - 1 tsp

Wash and soak rice for few hours ( 3 - 4 hours). Next transfer it to a mixer or blender along with thickly chopped tomatoes, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, coconut and salt. Grind them to a paste. You can make the batter very dilute but not very watery. Temper it with the tempering ingredients.
Heat a tawa/griddle and pour a ladle full of batter as thin dosas. You cannot spread this batter , so just pour it all the way as dosas. Spray some oil on top and cook till crisp. Turn and cook the other side too. Enjoy your delicious tomato dosa. Thanks Pavithra for this lovely recipe.

Got this award from Ammu of Nature Kitchen . Thanks so much Ammu for passing on this award to me. I am really honored :D
