    Have you heard of a tamizh household where there is no stock of dosai maavu on any particular day? My home is one of those typical households, where you will definitely find dosai batter in the fridge if not for vegetables. No…I am joking. You will find both:) Thakkali dosai or tomato dosai is one of the avatars of the regular dosai.

    Thakkali Dosai

    Tomato dosai is a naturally red coloured dosai and is a makeover which you can give to the stored batter. The colour and the change in flavour does entice people to look forward for it.I have added tomatoes, chillipowder and asafoetida to it. Make sure the basic dosai batter is not runny as the addition of the tomatoes might make it runny. Serve it with some coconut chutney and this is perfect for both breafast and dinner. I am sure you will love the little tangy red coloured thakkali dosai .

    You can check out the other Tomato dosai here which is prepared in a slight different manner.

    The measurement and preparation for dosai batter can be seen here.

    Both idli and dosai are prepared with the same basic batter.
