Dosa Recipe (Plain & Masala Dosa with Veggie Filling)
Dosa is a gourmet dish, even in India in some places, except for South India where Dosa (called Dosai) is a staple food item, enjoyed almost every day. It has become very popular in North India too. Masala Dosa, pronounced “Masaala Dosa”, is a Plain Dosa, but filled with Spiced Veggie Flling.
You can buy a good quality Dosa Mix in an Indian Grocery Store. Or you can make your own too if you like. The process of making Dosa Mix is a multi-step process. First you have to soak the grains. After several hours of soaking, you have to grind them and prepare a batter like pancake mix. Then you have to ferment it overnight in a warm place or in a conventional oven with just the warmth of the lights turned on. Then the next day you can actually make the Dosas. But once you have the batter, you can refrigerate it and use it over several days, in several ways.
While the Dosa can be prepared quite simply like a pancake, it can also be made into a large, thin and crispy Dosa. It can be plain dosa, or an assorted variety of side dishes and condiments can be prepared to go with a Masala Dosa. The Links for the Recipes of all these side dishes have been provided below.
