They say “Help will come to those who seek”…and it came to me too:-)….in the form of two friends/bloggers. When i was mentioning about my dosa debacle to Anusha(A lovely food blogger and a great writer)She suggested that I try adai and when KP(A father figure to me and an amazing writer) heard that I was making adai today , he suggested that I use cabbage with it. Thanks to both of them we had a lovely , yummy sumptuous dinner
Raw rice 1/2 cup
Par boiled rice 1/2 cup
Tuvar dhal 1/3 cup
Urad dhal 1/3 cup
Bengal gram dhal 1/3 cup
Red chillies 8-10
Ginger 1/2′ piece
Cabbage 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Soak both the rice together for 3-4hours
Soak all the dhal’s together for 3 hours
Grind rice, dhal, chillies and ginger to a paste in a mixer. Add salt and grind again.
Let the batter not be very smooth. A little coarseness adds to the texture.
The batter should not be runny too
Add finely chopped cabbage to this and mix well
Pour a ladleful of the batter on the tava and spread it using a circular motion, to make a thin dosai, keeping it in very low flame
Drizzle a little oil on the sides and cook.
When the lower side turns a little brown. turn over and cook on the other side
Repeat with the remaining batter to make those dosas
Serve hot!!!!!Tastes best with Dosai Molaga podi!!!!!
