Set dosa with mixed vegetable

Set dosa and Mixed Vegetable

Set Dosa

These are soft, spongy and light dosa prepared specially for breakfast. In restaurants specielly in Bangalore where I stay, these dosas are served in a set of 3 with a very delicious mixed vegetable. Usually set dosas are cooked only on one side but I cook them on both the sides. Sometimes I even make these dosas for tiffin. I will share both set dosa and mixed vegetable curry recipe. Lets start


Idli dosa rice or parboiled rice 1 cup
Urad dal 2 tablespoon
Thick poha( flattened rice) 1/2 cup
Methi seeds( fenugreek seeds) 5
Sugar 1/3 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Baking soda 1/4 teaspoon
Oil for frying


First in a large bowl take rice, urad dal, fenugreek seeds.
Wash two three times in running water.
Drain water and keep aside.
Now take flattened rice and wash properly.
Strain and add flattened rice or poha to the bowl of rice, urad dal and methi seeds.
Now put flattened rice, dal and dosa rice,sugar and methi seeds in a grinder and make a smooth paste.
Pour this batter in another bowl and let it ferment for 10 hours.
Now for preparing dosa heat a nonstick pan or griddle.
The griddle has to be medium hot not very hot.
If the batter is thick then add some water and baking soda and mix well.
Take a ladle of the batter and pour it on the non stick pan or griddle.
Spread the batter carefully to make a small round dosa.
Put some oil with a spoon on the sides.
When one side is golden flip the dosa.
When the other side also gets golden lift with a spatula and serve hot.
