30 RIDGEGOURD DOSA

Ridgegourd/Beerakaya/Peerkangai/ Heerekayi Dosa


Picture sent in by my sister Vimala
Recipe by her friend Lakshmi

Moong Dhal - 2 cups
Raw rice( can use sonamasoori) - a handful
Chillies - 3 or 4 ( red or green chillies)
Garlic - 3 or 4 flakes
Ridgegourd - 1 small( around 2 cups chopped)
Salt as needed


Peel the skin of the ridgegourd( can save that to make chutney/thuvayal).


Wash and soak dhal and rice for 2 hours together. Later grind them with all the ingredients to a paste ( in between coarse and soft). Transfer to a vessel and if needed can also temper with mustard seeds, urad dhal and curry leaves. Heat a griddle and spread as dosas. Serve with any type of chutney.

This is an instant variety of dosas and also healthy. Can substitute ridgegourd with any variety of vegetables and follow the same method.
