Starting your Sunday morning or any morning with dosas just off the tawa, sounds like a great idea. But want to try making a different kind of dosa? So here it is, cucumber neer dosa or southekayi neer dosa. Lacy, soft cucumber neer dosa speckled with light green cucumber not only sounds nice but also looks and tastes great!
You can soak rice overnight or just for 4-5 hours. Then you can grind rice with the remaining ingredients and then immediately make dosas. You can also keep the batter overnight/or few hours to lightly ferment and then make cucumber neer dosa. Either way they are delicious. The last time I made them I served them with sorekayi saasme but you can serve with any chutney! ... “Cucumber Neer Dosa | Southekayi Neer Dosa | Dosa Recipes”
Lacy and soft, very light on the stomach, ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa
02/3/2019 7:42:40 AM vindhyadesai
Who does not love dosas! I am a big fan of finding new ways of making dosas to bring in variety. So many textures, so many flavours all in a dosa. Soft, lacy, crispy, with filling, without filling, thick or thin, find them all in a dosa! You can make it simple and humble or grand and elaborate. So this time I have come back with a soft lacy dosa recipe ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa I learnt from a magazine.
Ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa is made with a simple rice batter. The most important thing about ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa is the rice does not require a lot of time to soak. Just soak it for a couple of hours. Then the rice is ground with little coconut and some batter is boiled into a ganji (rice porridge). This ganji is poured into the batter after it cools down making it ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa. ... “Ganji Dosa | Kalikanji Dosa | Dosa Recipes”

Keeping up with the theme of more healthy recipes this new year. Incorporate some high fibrous content and different grains/millets into your diet still in the form of usual dosa, idli and chapathi.

Use the ingredients you have on hand, plan a little and you will get a balance of all essential nutrients. Ragi oats dosa does exactly that!

Dosa is such a popular dish that new ways of making them are always welcome. Everyone loves a good masala dosa, the crisp dosa with red chutney and aloo palya on the inside served with sambar and chutney. That surely is a hit combination and I have not met a single soul that dislikes dosas. So here I am, back with another simple dosa recipe with homemade dosa batter, 3 ways uttapam. Read on to find out more 🙂
So this 3 ways uttapam, I have used different toppings to make it colourful and interesting. It has shallots (small onions), tomatoes, capsicum laid out of thick dosas with a crisp underside. Sounds just yum, isn’t it! For uttapam you can use freshly fermented dosa batter or left over dosa batter. But trust me you would want to make dosa batter just to make uttapam, the joy of eating specially made uttapam is equal to if not better than favourite masala dosas! ... “Uttapam | 3 Ways Uttapam | Dosa Recipes”
Soft, loaded with fresh spinach, perfect breakfast for a rainy morning, palak besan cheela

Recipes like cheela are simple yet they make your breakfast really hearty. Palak besan cheela is one of my favourites I started making in recent times.It is rich in protein and fibre, and what do I say about the flavour. Moreover it is instant and makes a quick breakfast.
Some simple spices like ajwain and jeera go into this cheela recipe and it makes the palak besan cheela simply great in taste. It is definitely a kid-friendly recipe, a palak besan cheela just before school and they are set to attend the classes! Just skip green chilli for younger kids.

Easy to make, no soak, no grind, crisp urad dal flour and rice flour dosa

Dosa means different things to different people. For some it is just a breakfast that they can have once every few days. For some it is an everyday affair, gulping down dosas in darshinis and hotels day in day out. And for some ‘the dosa’ is an emotion, it is the crisp sound of breaking the dosa and dunking it in chutney or sambar. It makes them just happy! I borderline between the 2nd an 3rd categories, just love dosas. But grinding dosa batter is not child’s play. This urad dal flour and rice flour dosa comes to your rescue.
If you are craving for dosa the next day for your breakfast (sometimes I dream about dosa, that is why borderline :)), you do not have to wait, 8 hours soak-time, then grind (an uphill task for a few & I don’t blame them), 8 hours fermentation. It indeed takes a lot of time to dish out good dosas. This urad dal flour and rice flour dosa definitely ticks a few boxes. ... “Urad Dal Flour And Rice Flour Dosa | No-Grind Dosa | Dosa Recipes”
A tasty & healthy alternative to regular dosa, red rice dosa for breakfast!

Variety of dosa recipes are a must for a South Indian home cook. Dosas are not just masala dosas as many think , they are much more. There is so much variety, so many recipes to play with. The end result is always tasty, delicious dosas for everyone to enjoy! This red rice dosa is one such great alternative to prepare.
I had raw red rice at home and also some red rice poha (flattened rice/avalakki). The best way to use red rice is to make red rice dosa, you get a lovely coloured dosa and the texture is crispy on the outside and soft inside. ... “Red Rice Dosa | Kempu Akki Dosa | Dosa Recipes”
Delicious and healthy, menthya soppina dosa or methi leaves dosa

Finding ways to make dosas is one of my favourite activities in cooking. Dosas are delicious any day be it neer dosa, hotel style rava dosa or the ever favourite masala dosa. If you can incorporate leafy veg like menthya soppu/methi/fenugreek leaves to make menthya soppina dosa then kids will love it.
Menthya soppina dosa is also rich in protein with toor dal and urad dal. Rice provides the body and the all the masalas are added while grinding the batter giving it a super tasty flavour. Finely chopped methi leaves are then added and dosas are made. Menthya dosa tastes best with only a dollop of ghee. Some chutney on the side can also be served. ... “Menthya Soppina Dosa | Methi Leaves Dosa | Dosa Recipes”
A classic Andhra breakfast dish, made using protein-rich mung beans, pesarettu

One more protein filled breakfast dish from FOI, made from mung beans/hesaru kaalu this time, pesarettu. Pesarettu is a classic Andhra breakfast, it is a type of dosa. Pesarettu is generally served with upma and allam chutney. Both of these recipes are coming up next.
Pesarettu are nice and crisp and the batter is also quite easy to prepare. As with mung dal paddu, pesarettu also is a good change from making urad dal based dosa batter. It is nice and easy on the stomach, the beautiful green hue is such a pleasant colour it makes these dosas even more appetizing. ... “Pesarettu | Pesarattu | Breakfast Recipes | Dosa Recipes”
Soft, sweet, traditional malnad special, baalehannina dosa

Bananas are such a versatile fruit. It pairs up so well with so many dishes. Fruit salads, smoothies, milkshakes, cakes, brownies, I pretty much use bananas for everything. This time, banana in the form of traditional dosas for breakfast or for a snack. Soaked rice ground with mashed bananas result in a sweet and soft baalehannina dosa.
These are fun to eat for everyone and the elaichi added to these dosas make them very flavourful. But making dosas means the need to make sides like chutneys. Good news, these dosas do not require any side dishes at all. Baalehannina dosa taste good with just a small piece of mango pickle (maavina midi especially) or a just a little ghee. ... “Baalehannina Dosa | Banana Dosa | Dosa Recipes”
