Cabbage Dosa

A few years ago when I was studying I had a friend in college from Mangalore. She used to bring cabbage dosa for her tiffin and I used to love it. She even got the recipe from her mom and shared it with me by word of mouth.
I had forgotten all about this recipe until one day when I had a big cabbage and I could not think of recipes to make out of it. So when life gives you cabbages make cabbage dosa, er! eh! 🙂

This cabbage dosa is a special kind of dosa. As in, it is very self contained and can sustain on its own on a plate without even needing a side dish. Of course ghee calls to be on it though. But that can be considered a no- effort topping for this mildly spicy and tasty dosa.
It is again very kid-friendly and makes kids eat their cabbage. Often looked down upon, this humble cabbage gets new meaning by making these dosas extremely flavourful.
Try different dosas from FOI, khaali dosa, set dosa, masala dosa, open dosa, neer dosa etc.

Notes
I make this with red/purple cabbage too sometimes. Will post some pictures

Toor dal tastes best for this dosa but you can instead add urad dal also

Add finely chopped green chillies if you want

Add raw rice instead of idli rice but idli rice gives body to the dosa
