Podi Dosai

This type of dosai was introduced to me by my grandpa.if you do not want to prepare ordinary dosai then try this type..



Ingredients
Dosai batter
Onion – 2 finely chopped
Green chilies -2 chopped
Milagai podi – as per requirement
Oil – as per requirement

Method
Sauté onion, green chilies. Then mix it with the dosai batter. Heat the tawa and pour a ladleful of batter. Then sprinkle milagai podi on top of the dosai. Put oil on side of the dosai. Turn over the dosai after it turns golden brown. Then take the dosai from the tawa after the other side also gets cooked. Repeat the same for the remaining batter. Serve hot podi dosai with coconut chutney. Dosai can be served as it is also.

This is a favourite of mine, Usha! Actually, I can even eat podi by itself with some gingelly oil - don't need idlis or dosas!

I love the podi and the dosa. My favorite food.When I have no podi, which normally I don't have . I put a little salt and oil in sambhar powder and have it with dosa :)
