Corriander Carrot Whole Wheat Dosai
This is one dosai which makes frequent appearance on the Dining table and also makes it to my Daughters tiffin box as she likes this very much, since it is whole wheat, it satisifies my hubbys criteria for high fibre food and the ease in which it can be made is convenient for me also.
Whole wheat flour - 2 cups
Dosa Batter - 2-3 ladles (Optional)
Butter milk - 1 cup
Water to make into batter
Salt to taste.
Corriander - 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup finely chopped
Carrot - 1/2 cup finely grated, steamed for a few mins or zapped in the microwave untill a little soft.
oil as reqd. (I prefer Sesame oil, can use Ghee also)
You can mix the first four ingredients by hand or with whisk till no lumps are there or you can follow my method for lump free foamy batter. You need a blender for this - mind you I have tried this out in Sumeet, Preethi and Philips. Take the bigger jar, pour a mixture of water and buttermilk untill the blade is one finger segment submerged (around 1 cm or so). add flour. Blitz two or three times, scrape down the sides with the spatula, add water if necessary, and blend till smooth. lastly add the dosa batter. takes hardly two mins.
Rinse jar and cover immediately after transferring batter to suitable container. If you are leaving it to dry then better mix by hand. Don't make more work for yourself in the kitchen.
Set aside for a minimum of fifteen minutes. Two hours will be ideal. Add the carrot & corriander and stir till well distributed.
Heat tawa to medium hot (not smoking), apply oil evenly with a papertowel soaked in oil or a rag
(Hint: Use an Aluminium/wooden Clothespin to hold the rag and save your finger tips a brush with the hot Tawa.)
Ladle one to two spoons in the middle of the tawa, spread in circular motion to form a medium thickness pancake. Drizzle a little oil or no oil for elders and a little more oil for children. When it changes colour and the underside turns golden flip over and cook the other side also the same.
Serve with Chutney of your choice (Coconut Chuney with Porikadalai Shown Here).
