Hi. I wish all my Indian friends a very happy REPUBLIC DAY.
Today I am posting a very simple, tasty and healthy recipe which is good for a working mom, tired mom, unwell mom or a sometimes lazy mom like me!!! Saturday night S asked me what’s for breakfast tomorrow? I was in a dubious state after the question as I had not planned anything till then. I surely do not like spending a lot of time in the kitchen on a Sunday. That time I just left the thought for the next day…how so very convenient..kal ka kal dekhenge …
Morning I entered the kitchen around 8 and kept the milk for boiling. The first thought that came to my mind was to make sandwich but instantly I shrugged it…who was going to boil potatoes…but then the bread caught my attention again and I thought why can’t I try a Dosa with it…surely will not taste bad and plus can be made quickly…hopefully!
So the next move was to put all the ingredients that came to my mind that point of time in the mixer grinder and make a spiced paste of that, then adjust the consistency of the batter, put the non-stick pan on gas stove, heat it and then pour a ladle full of batter, spread the dosa and wait to see how it turns out….phew…I did lot of work…and I was so tired by then…LOL. Jokes apart one can sense how much time is really needed to make these dosas ready…
To my surprise the Dosa turned out really nice, in fact no one can make out there’s bread in it!!! The semolina added to the crispiness and curds provided the adequate sourness. I tried an onion Uttapam also with this batter and that tasted equally good. I will surely experiment more with this dosa in future but right now I am ready to give you the approx measurements of the ingredients…
Ingredients For Bread Dosa
5-6 slices bread (I used wheat-germ bread)
1/2 –3/4cup yogurt
1 cup poha
3/4 cup semolina/rava
3/4 cup rice flour
7-8 green chilies
handful of chopped cilantro
an inch of ginger
salt to taste
oil for applying
a tsp of cumin seeds
Grind all the ingredients except oil and cumin to a smooth paste. Mix water, cumin seeds and make the batter. This batter has to be made slightly thinner than the normal dosa batter. Heat the non stick tava and spread the dosa and leave oil on its sides. Turn the dosa and cook it from the other side too. My observation was that this dosa takes a longer time to cook on one side than the regular ones… Once done serve it with chutney of your choice. My kids had it with some butter and it’s surely filling..
