Instant Tomato Onion Dosa with Red Chili Coconut Chutney

We have been making some new dosa dishes off late after I created a Pinterest Board on 101 Dosa Varietie

So this is the next in the series that Amma saw in a TV Show. We already have another Tomato Dosa that is very delicious. We wanted to see if this one stands to the same.

The chef called this Uttappam, however when you spread thick dosas, it didn't turn out so good. Thin crispy dosas with onions and green chilies was good. 

Summer vacation started for my kids and with the heat being so strong, they are clueless on how to spend the day. I will also have to come up with summer snacks for them to enjoy.

Tomato Onion Dosa

Ingredients Needed:

Raw Rice - 1 cup
Urad Dal - 1/2 cup
Ripe Tomatoes - 2 nos
Salt - 1 tsp

For the topping

Onions, finely chopped - 1 medium
Green chilies- 3 nos
Ginger - 1"

How to make the instant tomato Uttappam

Wash and soak the rice and urad dal separately for 3 hours.

Change water couple of times, and grind the rice and urad dal separately. Then make a puree of the tomatoes, add to the ground batter, add salt and grind everything together again.

Have the vegetables chopped and keep it ready.

Heat a tawa and grease with oil. Pour a ladleful of batter, swirl around to spread as a dosa. Sprinkle the onions, green chilies on top.

Cook on simmer, flip on the other side, cook till onions are browned.

Serve hot with Red chili coconut chutney
