Tomato, Brown rice and Red lentils – Instant Dosa/Crepes (Zero Oil)

 

Tomato Dosa5

About:

I’m always looking for time savers, particularly when it comes to breakfast/Dinner. But with how it’s served, the fabulous Orange-ish color and the light and fluffy texture.

Tomato in a dosa adds a nice flavour and taste. This dosa recipe is quite unique unlike traditional recipe; here the batter need not be fermented.  Tomato adds its tanginess and makes the batter to use immediately like an instant dosa.

Yields: 12-15 dosas
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25-30 minutes (2-3 minutes/dosa)

Ingredients:

  • Brown rice-1cup
  • Red lentils/masoor dal-1/4cup
  • Poha/flattened rice-a handful
  • Fenugreek seeds-2tsp
  • Chopped tomatoes-3medium
  • Salt-to taste

Tomato Dosa3

Procedure:

  • Rince and soak rice, red lentils, flattened rice, fenugreek seeds and soak for 5-6 hours.
  • Once soaked drain and set aside.
  • Add chopped tomatoes in a food processor/blender and blend to smooth, to this add in soaked –drained rice, dal and blend to smooth paste.
  • The batter can be used immediately or save and use later. (it can be stored in the refrigerator for 1-2days)

Tomato Dosa2

To make dosas:

  • Add salt to the batter mix well.
  • Heat a griddle/tawa on a medium flame.
  • Take a ladleful of batter and spread evenly from centre in a circular motion. (Can drizzle some oil if required)
  • And cook until golden, flip it over and cook other side if required (if the dosa is spread thin usually I cook only on one side so depends on the thickness)

Tomato Dosa3

Serve hot:

Curry leaves-almond chutney

Almond Curryleaves2

Peanut and Curry leaves chutney

Peanut Mint Chutney1

Note:

  • This dosas can be made thick/thin.
  • White rice/ parboiled rice can be used alternatively to brown rice
  • If red lentils not available handy it be replaced partially/completely with urad dal/yellow moong dal.
  • Using non-stick tava helped to get dosa oil free; If required Oil can be added
  • Spices and Onion can be included in dosas and personalised.

  18. I love this idea for instant dosa! For me most instant dosas just dont work, I have to either add a lot of oil to fry them or they just stick to the pan 😦 Thanks for this recipe 🙂

    • Fermenting the batter is so tough esp during winters and this is definitely going to save us during winter days and when we don’t have enough time to keep it overnight. .please do let me know if your wife gets to try this… Thanks a ton Alok (ji)…
