This is a very quick version Dosa/Dosai can be made with minimum ingradients,Delicious  breakfast and Tea time snack dish,Since we are using wheat flour and Rice flour as ingradients,this dosa is also good for Health  


  


Main Ingredients


(Cup size : 240 ML)

   Wheat flour - 1 cup

   Rice flour -    1 cup

   Medium sized onion - finely  chopped 

   Green chillies -2 very finely chopped

   Ginger - small bit finely chopped

   Cumin seeds/Jeera - 2 tsp

   Curry leaves - few tender ones

   Salt - 2 1/2 tsp approximately or as per your taste 

   Broken cashew nuts 2-3 tea spoons (optional) 

   Water - 4 cups

   Any Edible Oil for making dosas

   Tawa/Skillet  for making dosa


   For the seasoning


   Oil - 1 tsp

   Mustard seeds -3/4 tsp

   Cumin seeds 1/4 th Tea spoon 

   Hing - a pinch



Preparation


In a bowl, mix together wheat flour, rice flour, green chillies, ginger, cumin seeds, curry leaves and salt.Add water little at a time and mix well so that there are no lumps.






















Heat a tsp of oil, Add chopped Onions,Add mustards seeds, when it splutters, add hing/Asofotida























And pour the Tadka /seasoning  it into the dosa batter and mix well. 





Now our wheat dosa batter is ready. See how watery and thin it is in the picture below.

















Method


Now heat a tawa, once the tawa is heated, reduce the heat to medium, pour a ladle of batter from the outside of the tawa, then fill in bigger gaps if any.You cannot spread this batter like regular dosa but have to pour the dosa batter like rava dosa. There should be small holes in the dosa.



Now drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa and 1/2 tsp of oil on the dosa.(be a little generous with oil for this dosa- sesame seed oil is considered very healthy)

This dosa will take a little longer time to get cooked than regular dosa. Using the tongs or handle, move the tawa in a circular motion once, so that the dosa will get cooked evenly on all the sides. (see pic 1 below)







Wait until the bottom starts browning and the corners start lifting up. (see pic 2 below)


Now flip the dosa to the other side.Once the other side is cooked, remove the dosa from the tawa.



Before making the next dosa, mix the batter well to avoid sedimentation. You have to mix the batter every time before making every single dosa.


Repeat the same process for the rest of the batter.





Notes 


If you are a beginner, you might find it difficult the first two times or you may even fail, but once you practice, you can make this dosa with ease.

 Do not give up. Initially try with less quantity.(1/4 cup rice flour + 1/4 cup wheat flour).

This dosa tastes good only when it is Hot,So Serve Hot 

Serve with any pickle,chutney or sambar .

Those who like little fermented batter taste ,May use sour butter milk instead of water.
