Masala Dosai

As I saw the dosa mela event I knew what to post for this event. I just got hold of this new recipe from my neighbour again which gave a new taste to dosais.

Ingredients for the masala paste:
Onion – 2
Red chillies – 5
Garlic pods – 6 to 7
Salt – as per the requirement

Ingredients for the potato masala:
Onion – 2
Green chillies – 2
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Potato - 5 to 6 boiled and smashed
Cinnamon sticks -2
fennel seeds -1 tsp
Salt – as per the requirement

For the dosa batter:
For dosa batter soak ¾ cup of urad dhall and 5 cups of raw rice separately for 3 to 4 hours and grind it. Let it get fermented overnight.

For the masala paste:
Grind onion ,red chillies, garlic pods and salt together and keep it aside.

For the potato masala:
Heat oil in a kadai and put cinnamon sticks, fennel seeds,onion,green chillies and sauté it. Then put turmeric powder and salt. after some time put the potato and toss it.

Heat tava and pour a ladle of dosa batter and make dosa thinly. After the dosa is cooked then apply the masala paste all over the dosa then put the potato masala.No need to turn over the dosa as it is thinly made.Serve hot with chutney and sambar.
