BESAN AND WHEAT FLOUR DOSA...

BESAN DOSA OR PANCAKE ON THE TAVA

All those who read my blog regularly must be knowing about my affinity towards making different types of dosa, sandwiches and parathas .
I am always on a lookout for new dosa ideas as I feel that they are the most nutritious and filling breakfast or snack item that anyone can make and you can make innovations to suit your palate .Not all my trials have been successful , but I can proudly say that the success rate has been quite high.
As I go on experimenting with my dosas I will be posting the good one’s for all my fellow blogger’s to cook and relish them at home
.


DOSA READY
I found this recipe on Chandrika’s blog, I have made minor changes to suit my taste.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup besan or chickpea flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
one onion finely chopped
½ tsp jeera or cumin seeds
finely chopped green chilli
finely chopped ginger a little
¼ cup coriander finely chopped
¼ tsp sugar
1tbsp curds
salt to taste.



METHOD:

Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl (you will need about 11/2 cups water)
Mix till you get a dosa or pancake mix consistency.
Let it stand for about ½ hour.
Pour thick dosas on a griddle or tawa
Serve hot (this is very essential)
You can smear a little ghee on top for added flavor.
You can serve these with chutney, tomato ketchup or curds.
