Ghee Roast Dosa

Ghee roast dosa is one of the best served dosa in restaurants and in popular demand always,but the one with the least efforts too.You just have to get the correct consistency of the batter and  a big dosa tawa/griddle or a good non stick pan.At home,the stove top burners are small compared to the hotel ones.But still,you can recreate the smaller version of the big crisp dosas and enjoy these hot crisp dosas with the aroma of ghee.My kids love this dosa a lot and always becomes an easy evening snack for them.They just roll it and pop it up in their mouth.Check this out for your little ones !!


Ingredients
dosa batter 1 cup(refer notes)
ghee as required



Method
  • Mix the batter with a ladle.Add water to dilute the batter to very thin pouring consistency.Adjust salt.
  • Heat a non stick pan /griddle on medium high and when the pan/griddle  is hot ,pour a ladle of batter and start spreading out the batter with the back of the ladle moving outwards and thinning it out as much as possible reacing towards the rim.
  • Wait till the bubbles are formed and burst, there is light browning at the bottom and the sides start to give up,take a tsp of ghee and smear on the sides so that it becomes easier to flip the sides and then spread a thin layer of ghee on the inside too.
  • Flip the other side,if you wish can add ghee on this side too,but I usually avoid that as it just sticks to the serving plate.Roll the crispier side outside and serve hot with  tomato chutney or coconut chutney or peanut chutney !!!



NOTES
* To prepare dosa batter- Soak a cup of raw rice /long enriched rice & whole urad dal/uzhunnu 1/2 cup in water for about 3-4 hours.Grind the rice and urad dal separately to a smooth batter.Add some cooked rice about 2tbsp and grind it smooth.Mix the batter together,add salt.Leave to ferment for 6-7 hours in summers and 10-12 hours in winters.Whenever the batter is fermented,Refrigerate covered until use.(in winters,keep the batter in the oven or any closed place so that it aidsin fermenting.)
* I usually use home made ghee,but you can use store brought too !!!
