Give a twist to your regular dosai and make this crispy and tasty dosa waffle. Perfect when served with an array of chutneys for breakfast
Well, like many other fusion dishes, this is one of them. I am a typical south Indian Tambrahm. Hence like most of the south Indians, I have the dosai batter always or rather most of the times in my refrigerator. The routine for the week will mostly be in the order of Idli, Then dosai and then Paniyaram. But the same routine becomes boring if done regularly and then the search in the pantry starts as to what do I make for the next morning. The search is even more frantic when you have a daughter who is quite fussy about eating idli and dosai. But then when I gave the total new twist to the old batter with this dosa waffle, she was quite happy to have her morning breakfast. Preparing this waffle is quite easy if you have the ready dosai batter in your refrigerator.
We can make variations with the basic dosa waffle. We can add finely minced onions to make the very delicious onion dosa waffle. I like to make the spicy vegetable waffles.
Waffles are necessarily made in the waffle iron. However, not everyone will have a waffle iron. So we get the sandwich maker which has a waffle mould. Making waffles in this is easy too which gives you a ven browned waffle. The other option is to use the silicone mould and bake them in the oven. We can make waffles in one of the above-mentioned ways.
Generally, waffles that are available are the waffles with eggs. We can also make these eggless waffles with our regular all-purpose flour or maida. We can make sweet waffles as well as the savoury waffles. If you can be a little creative then we make waffles with millets too.
Here I have used the regular idli/Dosa batter. You can make similar waffles with your paniyaram batter and oothapam batter as well.
