Cabbage Dosai

For the second day of cabbage marathon, I had to pick a breakfast idea which uses cabbage. As usual my mother to my rescue. She had lived a fair part of her life in Mangalore and has a collection of recipe book from local authors. She sent me one book which neither has the title page nor  the last page. Hence I am not able to tell you the author but this is a specialty from Mangalore region. Here is the simple recipe from a very old book of a very delicious dosai variety
Raw rice      1 cup
Grated coconut   1/4 cup
Cabbage               1/2 cup
Ginger                  1/4 ” piece
Green chillies      2-3
Salt                       to taste
Oil                   few tbsps

Soak rice in enough water for 3 hrs. Grind it along with coconut, ginger, green chillies and salt to a very smooth paste
Add the necessary amount of water to make it into pouring consistency.The consistency should be little on the watery side.Add the finely cut cabbage pieces to it
Heat the tawa, pour a ladle of the batter in a circular motion from outside to inside
Put 1 tsp of oil around it
Cover it with a lid and cook on medium flame for 1 minute, Flip over and cook on the other side too.
This dosa does not turn into the usual golden brown colour but snall brown spots appear on the surface
Serve warm with the chutney of your choice
A very delcious dosai with the crunchy cabbage is a sure hit among kids!!
