Chettinad Dosai

I saw this in Kurinji’s blog and it sounded like a very tasty meal. I had some dosa batter and made this the same week she posted the recipe. It was really a different type of dosa with all the masala stuffs in it. This is something I will be making often.

Source- Kurinji Kathambam

I used:

Dosa batter – 2 cups
Onion -1, chopped
Cinnamon – a small piece
Cloves- 2
Curry leaves- a few
Red chillies- 4
Coriander seeds -1 tablespoon
Aniseed- 1 teaspoon
Cumin – 1 teaspoon
Black Peppercorns- 1 teaspoon
Poppy seeds-1 teaspoon
Grated coconut- 1 tablespoon
Ginger -1” piece
Garlic – 3 pods
Coriander leaves- a few
Turmeric powder- ¼ teaspoon
Salt to taste

1. Heat oil in a pan and sauté all the ingredients except salt and batter till onion turns golden brown.
2. Cool and grind to a fine paste with a little water.
3. Add this paste to the batter. Check for salt and add if needed. [The batter already has salt, so check first.]
4. Mix and keep aside for 10 minutes for the flavors to blend.
5. Heat a griddle and pour a ladle of batter in the centre and spread to a circle.
6. When the edges leave the pan, flip over and cook for a couple of minutes till golden brown.
7. Remove from heat and serve with a chutney and sambar of your choice.
