Peas - Aloo Masala Dosa

The most loved and favourite dosa of our family. My mom often make this at home often and she prepares a very flavourful masala. It is not the usual masala that we eat in restaurants. I'm sure, the first thing that come to anyone's mind about the masala dosa would be it's crispiness. I've given the procedure for very crispy flavourful masala dosa.




Ingredients Needed for Crispy Dosa :

1. Raw Rice - 1 Cup
2. Idly Rice - 1 Cup
3. Urad Dhal - 1/2 Cup
4. Fenugreek - 1 tsp
5. Thoor Dhal - 2 tsp
6. Salt - Needed qty

Procedure :

1. Soak both raw and idly rice together for 3 hours along with fenugreek and thoor dhal.

2. Soak urid dhal just an hour before grinding.

3. Grind rice and urid dhal separately.

4. Mix them together in a vessel.

5. Add salt and mix well.

6. Allow it to ferment for atleast 8 hours before use.

Ingredients for Masala :

1. Peas - 1/2 Cup (Fresh)
2. Potato - 4 (Cooked and mashed)
3. Onion - 1/2 Cup (Finely chopped)
4. Tomato - 1 (Cut in to pieces)
5. Red chilly powder - 3 tsp (Adjust to your taste)
6. Garam masala - 1 tsp
7. Salt - Needed qty
8. Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
9. Oil - 1 tbs
10. Coriander - 1/4 Cup (Finely Chopped)

Procedure :

1. Heat oil in a pan. Add ginger-garlic paste. Fry well till raw smell goes off.

2. Add onion and tomato and fry for sometime.

3. Now add peas, red chilly powder, garam masala and salt.

4. Add the mashed potato and mix well.

5. Keep the stove in medium flame and cover the pan with lid.

6. Stir occasionally. Take out from the stove after 20 minutes.

7. Add coriander and mix well.

8. Keep aside.





Make crispy thin dosas and keep the masala in the dosa and serve hot with chutney and sambar.
