Welcome our New President! The world will be buzzing for many days/years of this historic day , event, his name and all his moves…But I will be blogging as usual about food without change…Talking about change, we are seeing some unusual weather pattern in California.
Bay Area has seen a near record high temperature from past 10 days. When many of other States are blaming the bitter cold weather and a record low temperature!
We all Californian felt a sudden pleasant weather pattern, which definitely lifted our winter blues.
Now talking about food, apart indulging some favorite flavor of ice cream and smoothies. I was hunting for instant dosa list that I book marked earlier. We just freak for dosas more than soft spongy idlis. The best thing is when you can prepare the batter instantly is less hassle! I have bookmarked many instant dosas during the Dosa Mela season. But selecting one dosa is quiet hard so I simply selected a blogger, which simplified my work.
The recipe is from Teluguruchi –Uma, I am a regular visitor to her blog, pretty much from one year. I really hooked on her chutney list when I first visited. We both have something in common: we adore spicy food! She has some amazing creations from leftover like the Gulab jamoon from assorted cookies :) Uma, tell me your secret how could you come up with such an idea ? :) Thank you Uma for your recipes, warm encouragement, sharing your awards, tags, and the support you are giving.
The instant dosa recipe is just amazing: no fermentation, no grinding, and no waiting. The most important thing, you can even pre-mix the flour and store it for a rescue timing. When you do have a sweet darling husband who cannot make a difference between Toor dhal, Bengal gram dhal like mine. Assuming one day if I am really really sick, he just need to grab the mix and read the label well I sticked one (guess he can do it without difficulty) and make dosa ! May be I am expecting too much? Gosh, I just wish he could read this post and want to see how he would react!
These dosas are accompanied with tangy, sweet and spicy Onion chutney. If you are bored of coconut, peanut or in extreme diet, onion chutney is great rescue. The chutney is our family favorite, one of my mom's recipe!
Onion: a big one (approximately 2 cups chopped)
Tamarind: a small piece or ½ tsp of paste
Dry red chilis: 3 num less or more
Salt: ¼ tsp less or more can be added
Oil: ½ tsp
Oil: ½ tsp
Mustard seeds: ¼ tsp
Urad dhal: ¼ tsp
Curry leaf: few leaves
Heat the oil and fry the onion until it turns brown and soft, add the red chilis and tamarind fry few minutes. Cool completely and grindit in a blender with salt into a slightly coarse paste.
Heat the oil and add one by one starting with mustard seeds. Mix the seasoning with the coarse chutney.
Chutney is great with idli, dosa and even roti/chapatti.
The dosa is reaching MBP-easy breezy breakfast event hosted by EC, started by Coffee.
The chutney is participating the Chutney/Dip mania hosted by Mane Adige.
