A Diary of my kitchen experiments and sometimes about just life in general :)
Sometimes even if you have time on hand, you dont utilize it and as i tell always i am a real lazy bum and sometimes hates myself for it. I had preared these dosas a week back and planned to post it before 24th as that was the date for the Taste and Create. This time i was back with them after a break of some months and so wanted to be prompt in posting, but my moods had other plans and hence the delay, sorry min and will surely make it before the deadline from next time. This month i am paired with Veena of Veg Juction and have prepared these beauties.
Dosa’s are a regular fare in my home and have followed her recipe completely.
Kal Dosai/Set Dosa
Raw rice 1 cup
Par boiled Rice 1 cup
Udad Dal 1/2 cup
Fenugreek seeds 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Ghee to cook
Soak both the rice together in water for 3 hours
Soak the dal for 3 hours
Soak the Fenugreek seeds in little water for the same time
Wash the soaked dal well, drain the water and grind it into a very smooth fluffy batter with minimum water.
Wash the rice and drain out the water. Grind it with the fenugreek seeds with the water that is soaked in. It givs a tremendous amount of flavour to the Dosai. Grind it to a very smooth batter
Mix both the batters nicely by adding salt.
Cover the batter and leave it to ferment overnight.
Next day, Heat a Tawa,Pour a ladle full of batter into it,do not spread the batter as it will spread by itself.
Spread ghee all around the dosa and cook for a minute.
Serve hot with chutney of your choice.
I sprinkled some dry chutney powder on the dosa while it was cooking, this is the way sakshi likes it.
This is off to Taste And Create February Edition.
