Cotton Dosa | Soft & Spongy Dosa

                                      “D FOR DOSA!!”

I have a feeling Ashritha (my 5 month old) is going to say this at her playschool once she grows up.. Kidding, of course! But looking at the dosa lover genes she’s got from both of us, my joke does have a teeny weeny chance of turning into reality.. 😉 Anyways lets jump backward for now and here is C for Cotton dosa!!

Some weeks back as i was browsing fb, my eyes fell on this beautiful white, super soft and spongy looking dosa posted by my friend, well wisher and a talented cook Nandini akka.. I quickly bookmarked the recipe from her amazing blog Kinis Kitchen and tried it out the following weekend..
Just like the name, this dosa did turn out cottony soft and delicious in taste.. My hubby loved it so much that we had it for dinner too that day.. They looked so pretty that the food blogger in me could not help but click click click..

Similar to these Cotton dosas, I have already posted a Mallige Idli recipe which turns out equally soft and delicious.. So do try either of them this weekend and enjoy a delicious breakfast with your family!

By the way this is my 31st Dosa recipe in the blog (Yeah!! My hubby aims at making it 100!) For the rest 30 dosa recipes you can check my Dosa Corner page..

Health Benefits of Dosas: Since it contains lentils, dosas are a great source of Protein and Carbohydrates which can keep your hunger pangs away for a long time thus curbing overeating..Dosas and idlis are probiotic foods(since the batter is fermented) which are beneficial for the absorption of vital vitamins and minerals in the body and also for improving immunity..

RECIPE: {Makes around 15- 18 dosas}

Adapted from here

3 Cups Rice
1/4 Cup Urad dal
1 Cup Beaten rice/ Poha/ Aval (thick variety)
Salt to taste

Oil to cook the dosa

1. Soak rice along with urad dal for 4 hours..

2. Soak beaten rice for an hour before grinding..

3. Grind everything together to a fine paste..
4. Add salt and mix well with hands to kick start fermentation..

5. Keep covered in a warm place overnight or for 8- 10 hours..

6. While making dosas, heat a pan and reduce the flame to medium.. Now pour a ladle of the batter in the center and spread slightly to give it round shape..
Note: Do not spread like regular dosas.. This is a thick dosa..

7. Cover and cook for half a minute.. Oil the edges..

8. After the dosa is cooked well, remove from pan..

Enjoy Cotton dosa with a chutney of your choice or with any side dish..

I served it with spicy, tangy and delicious Onion Chutney!
