Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but most of us try skipping it , or make it the lightest one giving it lest importance. During college days i used to have a hard time to finish off my breakfast , but now i try my best to fill my tummy with the most important meal of all.
If you have been following my previous posts ,you might have got to know that we do not take cornflakes for breakfast. Well i am not offending anyone or any particular brand for that matter , but we do not like cornflakes.
Well Dosa and Idly are pretty common in our household, but still its not so common that i make Masala Dosa. As kids when our family went to dine out at a Vegetarian restaurant Masala Dosa was the only thing that i used to order, but i never got satified with the taste ,other than the Masala Dosas mom made. Every mom makes her dishes special with a so many extra pinches of love , and may be thats why i loveee her Masala Dosas, she used to serve me hot hot Masala Dosa right from the Dosa tawa. Nowadays its my turn that i serve my little lady love with some hot yummy Masala Dosa, and she lovesss it.
Well, i really do not need to say anything about this wonderful food which is perfect for any season and even any time of the day too.
Masala Dosa for Breakfast !!!
Dosa Batter 4 - 5 cups ( diluted with enough water and salt, to a pouring consistency )
For the Masala :
3 - 4 Potatoes ( boiled , peeled )
1 big Onion ( sliced )
2 Green chilies ( slit )
5 -6 Garlic cloves ( chopped )
1 " inch Ginger piece ( chopped )
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
Curry leaves 4 -5 ( torn )
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
Break the potatoes into small and medium pieces , do not smash it all.
Heat oil in a Kadai and pop mustard seed, add in the Curry leaves + Green chili + Ginger + garlic , and saute for a min.
Add in the Onions and saute until it turns translucent and JUST soft.
Add in the turmeric powder + potatoes and just about 1/4 cup water and mix well.
Keep it aside.
Heat a Dosa Tawa / Pan to medium heat, and pour in a ladle full of batter in the middle.
Spread the batter on the pan by a circular way, drizzle some oil on top.
When the dosa gets cooked , lay 1tbsp - 2tbsp of Masala in the middle of the dosa , in a straight line.
Cover the dosa in half and slightly press the sides of the dosa to seal it.
Flip it on the sides and cook it again for 15 sec on each side, and serve.
I served it with Kerala Coconut Chutney and Spicy Tomato - Garlic Chutney.
