When I saw the post by Cham for an Instant Dosa mix, I knew I was going to have to try it... though I figured it would turn out like any of my other attempts and only disappoint me. Turns out, I was anything but disappointed! The original recipe came from Essence of Andhra... along with some more appealing pictures calling me to try this recipe. I used up the first batch already, It's been less than a week, and now I'm going to have to make more... maybe a double batch! Thanks, Cham, for bringing Uma's recipe to my attention!!!
Along with it, I made the masala filling I found in Betty Crocker's Indian Home Cooking... Surprised? I doubt it, I cook from this book almost weekly! If i'm not cooking from this, I'm cooking from some other Betty Crocker book :P The filling consisted of black mustard seed, chana dal, cashews, asafetida, turmeric, potatoes, cilantro, ginger, fresh chilies, and curry leaves. It had also called for tomato, which I didn't have, so I left out. This didn't matter, it was still awesome!
I also made a chutney, which I just came up with using whatever I had... I wanted a green chutney, but no fresh mint... I wanted an onion chutney, but wanted to use up my fresh cilantro... So this is what I came up with ...
- 2 green chilies (wow, maybe I will use 1 next time :D)
- 1 red onion
- 2 handfuls fresh cilantro
- 2 tsp. tamarind paste
