Pollya phadi is a konkani term which literally means "dosa pieces".Its a sweet konkani dish that is great to have as a snack.The dosa batter is made using rosematta rice which brings out the best flavor in the dish.Dosa is made as usual and torn to bite size pieces and combined with a sweet mixture of coconut,jaggery and cardamam powder.This combination is so tasty that one can never stop having it.
Rosematta rice-1 cup
coconut shredded- 1/2 cup
FOR THE SWEET MIXTURE
jaggery - 1/4 cup (more if u like it sweeter)
cashew nuts-2 tbsp(optional)
cardamam pdr-1 tsp
Soak rice for 4-5 hrs.Then grind the rice and coconut separately and combine together in a bowl.Add enough water to make it into a spreadable consistency.Add salt to taste and let it stand for 1 hr.
In the meantime in a separate bowl combine coconut with jaggery.Mix it well together.Then sprinkle with cardamam powder.
Heat a tawa.When it gets hot Pour a ladleful of batter on it and spread it out evenly in a circular motion.When it gets brown on one side flip it and let it cook the other side too.The dosa should be slightly soft and not very crisp. Make about 8-10 dosas and tear it into bite size pieces and drop into the sweet mixture bowl.If the mixture wasnt enough for the dosas made then u can make little more of the sweet mixture and mix into this.Serve it at room temperature. With the remaining batter make dosas and eat with simple chutney or store it in fridge and amke another batch of pollya phadi the next day.
