Kerala  Masala Dosa


Rice - 2 cups
Onions(large) - 2 nos
Garlic pods - 6 nos
Dry red chilly(Kollamulaku) - 1 no
Vegetable oil - 1 tsp
For chutney:-


Step 1. Wash thoroughly and soak black gram and rice separately for 6 - 8 hrs.
Step 2. Grind them separately into very smooth paste and mix them together adding salt.
Step 3. Allow this dough to ferment overnight during winter and 4 to 5 hours in summer.
Step 4. For the stuffing (masala):-
4)Boil potatoes and chop onions, ginger, garlic and green chillies may be finely chopped or made into paste.
Step 5. Heat oil in a broad pan.
Step 6. Add a tsp of black gram, mustard and red chillies.
Step 7. When mustard seeds splutter, add cumin seeds, onion pieces, ginger garlic and green chillies (finely chopped or ground), turmeric powder, curry leaves broken into pieces and fry till transparent.
Step 8. Meanwhile, peel the boiled potatoes and cut them into medium size pieces.
Step 9. Add them to the frying onions, mix well, remove from fire after about 5 mins and set aside.
Step 10. Make the chutney by grinding together 1/2 coconut, 4 green chillies, 1 tsp of ginger, a bunch of cilantro, tiny piece of tamarind and salt to taste into fine, thin paste, adding water.
Step 11. Heat a flat pan and make thin dosas by spreading the dough on the pan with a ladle.
Step 12. Spread oil all around the dosa and when the edges turn golden brown, don`t over turn the dosa but place two table spoons of the prepared masala on the dosa and first fold one side over it and then the other side and remove from pan and serve.
Step 13. Repeat the procedure for the next dosa.
Step 14. :- The secret of crisp dosas lies in the amount of oil spread around it.
With chutney these masala dosas make great eating.

This is recipe for normal Dosa. But for masala dosa, we must add few grains of Yellow Lentils(Tuar Dal or Bengal Gram). This will not make dosa soft. And also, if you find that the batter has not fermented well(which can result in the dosa not having the holes) you can sour curd. Also use Plain Salt i.e. the salt without Iodine for better fermentation. Rgds, Swati.
