Tomato, Brown rice and Red lentils – Instant Dosa/Crepes (Zero Oil)
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)
- Brown rice-1cup
- Red lentils/masoor dal-1/4cup
- Poha/flattened rice-a handful
- Fenugreek seeds-2tsp
- Chopped tomatoes-3medium
- Salt-to taste
- 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)
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)
- 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.
