Ganji Dosa

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.

So soak the rice as soon as you wake up . Make delicious ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa in time for breakfast. No fermentation required and it is almost an instant dosa. Sure, a little preparation is required but hey we can eat some soft lacy dosas! Ganji dosa is like neer dosa but which does not require a lot of coconut. Kids will absolutely love this dosa as well. Serve with freshly grated coconut and jaggery mixture, see neer dosa recipe.
