METHI LEAVES DOSA

Methi leaves dosa is one of the most flavorful dosa i have ever had.No fermentation required and no chutney required.If you are a dosa lover and i am sure you all are then this is a must try .I guarantee you will fall in love with this instantly.
This is my second post for the recipe marathon.


INGREDIENTS

Idli rice - 2 cups

Shredded coconut - 1 1/2 cups

Cumin seed - 1 1/2 tsp

turmeric - 1 1/2 tsp

Dry red chillies - 8 nos,depending on the level of spiciness u like

Green chillies - 3 nos

asafoetida - 1/2 tsp

Tamarind concentrate - 1 tbsp

Methi leaves - a bunch,roughly chopped

curry leaves - of 1 sprig,roughly chopped(optional)

water

salt to taste

METHOD

Soak rice for about 4-5 hours and grind it smoothly.Transfer it into a bowl and keep aside.Grind the rest of the ingredients except methi leaves and curry leaves and add it to the rice paste.Mix it until they well combined.Add in the chopped methi leaves and curry leaves.Add water to get to a spreadable consistency.It shouldnt be too thin nor too thick.Check for salt.Let it rest for atleast half an hr before making dosas.

Heat a tawa on a medium flame and when it gets hot pour a ladleful of the batter on it and spread it out evenly in a circular motion.Spread a tsp of oil all around and cover it with a lid and let it cook for 1-2 mins or until its brown on the bottom side.Flip it and let it cook for the same amount of time.Serve hot with or without chutney.

Hi ranji, so many beautiful posts! I made your jambul and it came out really good thanks for the recipe!! I am guessing that the last item in this post is a ukkeri made out of the skin of some vegetabke (maybe raw banana, or pumpkin , or ashgourd)??

Hi Ranji, this is my first visit to your site and you do such a nice job! Your dosa looks great! As for my guess to your mystery dish, I want to say potatoes and mustard seeds. :)

Meera said...

That dosa looks nice. I make methi dosa called pooda Gujarati way but that's very different. Thanks for posting it.

& is that bitter gourd? Some upkari, right?

Aparna said...

We use drumstick leaves in dosa but have never seen methi leaves in dosas. Will definitely try this out.
Your mystery food- It looks pretty much like the skin of raw plantains (vazhakka tholi). Am I right?
