Instant Tomato Dosai (Thakkali Dosai)

I like to experiment on new dosa varieties and one such try was this tomato dosai. When I saw this dosa in a tamil magazine, I noted down the recipe, tried it recently and got hooked on to the recipe since then. So wanted to share the recipe here.....

My Notes:
  • Spread the batter thin to get a crispy dosa.
  • You can also add more coconut if you want.
  • You can also add chopped onions to the batter which adds nice flavour to the dosa.
  • The batter consistency should be like the normal dos batter consistency so add/minus water accordingly.

You can also spread the batter thick to get oothapams.. This dosa is very flavourful and best when combined with sambar and coconut chutney. Also use the grinding part while grinding the batter itself but since I wanted a instant version I like making it this way.
