Last week in Kochi, I was at my brother’s home for breakfast and my sister-in-law made the most crispy dosas ever 😋 !! Back home in Bangalore, I was commending on the dosas and the kid said that he wants to have crispy dosas too.
For me the humble dosa became an overnight celebrity when I saw Gary Mehigan (from Masterchef Australia) make a masala dosa on one of his cookery shows.
Dosas are easy to make, but the batter needs 8 hours to ferment. At least I thought so, till we saw a contestant named Loki make the dosa in a few hours on one of the Masterchef Australia immunity challenge cook-offs. Nigella Lawson was the visiting celebrity for the week and she asked the contestants to make pancakes. Everyone went for the traditional sweet pancakes, while Loki made the dosa served with chutney. Gary Mehigan was shocked and delighted and so were the other judges and Loki went on to win the challenge. And the dosa became a Masterchef celebrity !!
I did not figure out Loki’s trick to make the easy dosa batter, I made the batter from raw rice and urad dal soaked in water; kept it overnight to ferment and rise. Spread the batter gently on a hot tawa and dosas are ready to go.
It’s dinner and as an accompaniment to dosa, I am making a mutton curry. Once again thanks to the online app Licious, mutton arrives at the doorstep.
The mutton curry is easy to make and everyone has a favourite recipe. I pressure cook the meat separately and add to the masala and bring everything to a boil in the kadai.
Are the dosas crispy ? The kid is not complaining, maybe it’s the mutton curry😁. Dosa is easy to make and a welcome change from the usual chapattis. Always good to have it hot and straight off the tawa.
Leftover batter…? Awesome, I am going to have dosa and bulls eye for breakfast 🍳.
Have a good day everyone🌸🌸
Till next post, take care !!
