Paneer Capsicum Masala Dosa

Ever since Anusha told me about this dosa, I wanted to try it and finally I cooked it today. And i must say…IT is very delicious!!!!!!

For the dosa batter
Par boiled rice 4 cups
Urad dal (whole ) 1 cup
Fenugreek seeds 3 tbsps
Paneer 1 cup
Capsicum 1
Onion 1
Tomato 1
Chilli powder 2 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp
Cilantro 1 tbsp
Salt to taste

Soak rice, dhal and fenugreek separately for 4-5 hours
Grind the dhal first into a very smooth paste with less water.
Remove and keep aside.
Now grind the rice and fenugreek to a smooth paste.Add the dhal to this and grind again with the necessary salt
Transfer this to a vessel and let it ferment over night
Cut all the vegetables finely
For the stuffing, heat oil in a Pan. When the oil heats up sufficiently add the onions and saute until it turns transparent.
Now add the ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute
Next add the tomatoes and saute until oil leaves the sides.
Now add all the dry powders and saute for a minute.
Add salt and mix well.
Now add the capsicum and saute for few minutes and then dunk in the crumbled paneer and mix well.
Final assembly according to anusha
Heat a girdle or a tawa. Spread one ladle of dosa batter evenly on the tawa and wait for the dosa to become brown and crisp. Make sure its well cooked and spread the required amount of stuffing. Fold the dosa and serve with coconut chutney or tomato chutney or peanut chutney.

O' that sounds interesting with two more votes.., I know I can please my kids with capsicum., but paneer ..!?, Anyway they like it or not I am going to give this a try!, (you must be wondering why…, my comment is like this.., I was thinking loudly which without my knowledge my hands were flying away on the key board.., I have one monkey out of three who doesn't like Paneer!, I take extra ways to please him!), I will try this out and tell you,

I'm bored of having potato masala all the time for masala dosa. This will give a nice variation. Lovely recipe Veena. Looks delicious!!! Jayanthi (

Crisp protein packet dosa. Just love it. In my city one Indian restaurant have dosa buffet nights every Monday. I relish it often there.
