Instant 7 Cup Dosa with Urad Chutney

                                This recipe is completely dedicated to my husband as it was he who found it out for me.. Remember some days back i had blabbered about my hubby finding out new dosa and idli recipes for me.. Out of them, i have already posted Broken Wheat dosa and Oats Poha Idli which have been a hit with many of my friends.. Now here is the third of his “find” – 7 Cup Dosa… This dosa is by far the most unique and unexpectedly delicious dosa i have ever made.. A mix of lentils and grains makes this dosa healthy and filling too… All in all, i can call this as one of the best dosas on my blog!
                                Btw did you notice the yummy chutney on its side along with the new bowl and plate {Results of my latest shopping spree! Aren’t they cute??}.. This chutney is an amazing recipe by my friend Sumathi who is also the creative genius of KKAJ.. Her presentations are simply mind blowing ones always.. Same adjective can be used for this chutney too.. Even my Hing Chutney lover hubby had to say that he loved this dip with “his” 7 cup dosa {Yes! He calls this dosa as “his”.. After all he did the “hard work” of finding this yummy recipe..Mr Google, please forgive my dear hubby.. ;)}.. 

                                    Actually i was supposed to add this recipe towards the end of this week but i just could not resist posting early.. Also since weekend’s here {Yippee!} writing a recipe is next to impossible.. So here is another wonderful dosa and chutney recipe for you… You can also check my Dosa Corner! page for 26 more varieties of dosa..
