Karivepillai Dosai / Curryleaves Dosa

Coming to day 2 themed under colorful dosa is a pale green colored dosa made with curry leaves.Back in India my mom used to make a dosa with ballon vine(mudaikatahn keerai).Some times curry leaves can also be added along with it.Since I don't get ballon vine here,made it only with curry leaves.
The dosa came out so well with the flavor of curry leaves and cumin,pepper.This dosa tastes good when it is straight from the pan.It turns slightly hard when its cool down.So I personally prefer to have it when its is warm.Both coconut chutney and spicy chutney goes well with this dosa.Off to the recipe.................

What a flavorful and delicious looking curry leaf dosa Nalini. Looks and sounds amazing.

Curry leaves must have imparted wonderful flavor to dosa. Another good point is, there is no need of fermentation. Can it be made using rice flour?

Lovely green nalini, yeah i too have taste mudakathan dosai. Curry leaves must have given a wonderful aroma to the dosa.

From the look of the dosa itself I guessed this is made only from rice (without urad dal). Your dosa has come out perfectly...
