This is my own original recipe! I wanted to go back to my roots, and make dosa. However, I could get the lacy look, but I don’t know if it was my pan or my cooking but they always broke when I tried to turn them over! So I developed this yummy replacement!
For the pancakes/dosa
1 cup fine semolina
1/2 cup cooked rice
1/2 cup gram flour
mix flours, semolina, rice, salt, jeera in to paste with a little milk using a fork. Try and crush up cooked rice.
add water to make a thick batter.
heat oil in frying pan
using a ladle pour in to frying pan, keeping ladle in one place, batter should form a circle, you can cook two at a time.
when bubbles form and top is dry turn over and cook other side for 1 min, then remove!
red chilli flakes
fry chopped onion in pan until golden.
add turmeric, curry leaves and cumin and mustard seed until they pop
add ginger, garlic, chilli and chopped tomato until tomato is soft
add chopped potatoes and salt.
cover with water and cook until potatoes are soft and water is reduced,
