Rocket Dosa…………zooooooooooooooooooooooom

Posted by Sneha on January 17, 2007


Weekends being the only time I make elaborate breakfast, today our breakfast was Dosa

Though its an alltime favourite for me and hubby, it takes a lot of effort to make my 6 year old – VERY picky eater, eat not just Dosa but, anything that says FOOD! So, I have to come up with something new and novel everytime to make her eat. I sometimes make “Mini” dosas or “Paisa” Dosa – coined by one of my friends, to make her little one eat! Sometimes, it is “Heart” dosa, with the help of a pancake mold, and today, it was “Rocket Dosa” to get her interested!

The basic recipe I follow for Dosa batter is:

1:3 Urad Dal:Rice

1 cup Poha/Aval/Avalakki

1 tsp methi seeds

Soak the above in enough water for 6-8 hours. While grinding, add a handful of riceflakes/avalakki/poha (adds a nice golden brown color to the dosa) and make into a smooth, fine batter. Add required amount of salt and allow it to ferment for 8-10 hours. I usually keep mine inside the oven.

Make dosas the regular way until the bottom turns golden brown. Dont turn sides. Cut the dosa from the edge to the centre and then start rolling it in the shape of a cone(see picture). Rocket dosa is ready! Serve with any chutney or side dish of choice.

    Sorry there’s some confusion regarding how much poha is needed. Jeya, please use ONE cup of poha. I will edit/correct the post accordingly soon.

    Should the poha be soaked. Would appreciate if you let me know this. I really want the dosa to look golden brown like that.

    Thanks for posting the recipes
