Instant Dosas ~ Mixed Flour Dosas


A quick and healthy option over soak, grind and ferment kind traditional dosas. You can whip up a delicious and filling breakfast on last minute even without any planning when it comes to instant kind of dosas. You can take away or add any flours / vegetables you have on hand and those you think can work in this recipe.

Ingredients: (yields 10 dosas)
1/2 cup rice flour
1/4 cup urad flour / black gram flour
1/4 cup oat flour
1/4 cup garbanzo flour / besan
2 tbsp soy flour
Salt to taste
1/4 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup grated bottle gourd / lauki
1 - 2 green chillies finely minced
1/2 tsp grated ginger
2 tbsp finely minced cilantro
Water to make the batter (about 1 & 3/4 cups)
Oil to make dosas
For tadka:
2 tsp oil, 1 tsp chana dal, 1 tsp urad dal, 1 tsp cumin seeds and few pinches of asafoetida

* Heat oil in a pan for the tadka and add chana dal, urad dal and cumin seeds. When dals start turning reddish, add the asafoetida and turn off the stove.
* Combine all the ingredients except oil and water in a mixing bowl. Gradually add water and make a lump-free batter with a spreadable consistency. Add the tadka to the batter and mix well. Take care that the batter doesn't turn too watery. In case if it does, add some extra flour.
* Heat a griddle or a shallow pan. Take a ladleful of batter and pour at the centre of the pan. Spread lightly with the back of the ladle and spread about 1/2 tsp of oil around it.
* Cook until dosa turns golden brown through out on the bottom side and flip it. Spread 1/4 tsp of oil again if needed and cook until the other side cooks too.
* Repeat the procedure with the remaining batter.

This is going to be my contribution to "Instant Idlis / Dosas" theme. Check what other marathoners are cooking at BM #34.
