Carrot Dosai/Carrot Dosa

Today is the final post for the colored dosa,themed in Food Carnival in Mega Blogging Marathon.
As my kids hesitate to eat veggies I sneak in some of their favorite food.Since dosa is their favorite I try to sneak the veggies as much as possible.
Coming to the recipe,this is a simple and healthy dosa can be made instantly.Need to soak the rice for few hours and grind to a fine paste.The same recipe can be followed for beetroot dosa too.Off to the recipe.....

                              Carrot Dosai/Carrot Dosa

   Basic Information

  • Mix both ground rice and carrot paste well .Adjust the consistency of the batter with water.The consistency should be slightly watery.Heat the griddle and add few drops of oil and wipe it off with the paper.Pour a ladleful of batter in the center.Spread it as thin as possible.
  • Drizzle a tsp of oil and cook it in a medium flame.After a minute or two,flip the dosa to the other side and cook .Drizzle one more tsp of oil if needed.Remove it from the pan.
  •  Serve it  with  tomato chutney  or spicy chutney.

  • The batter consistency is very important to get a nice dosa.If you are sure with consistency then do a trial dosa and adjust it.
  • Flip the dosa and cook it for a minute even if its cooked.
  • While pouring the batter on the griddle,the flame should in medium,then increase the flame  and cook it.
  • A tbs of soaked channa dhal is also added to the ground batter along with chopped coriander leaves.
