Crimson Dosa | Beets Dosa

Another varied form of dosa is my crimson dosa. Yesterday ,I happened to try it out and it came well. Crimson dosa is nothing but adding beets to the dosa batter.Just to make it colourful for kiddos to enjoy and thus sharing with you all.

for the batter
urad dal 1/3cup
plain rice 1cup
cooked rice 2tsp
salt to taste

for the crimson color
beet 1 chopped

Soak the rice and urad dal for 2-3hrs and grind to a batter along with cooked rice,add salt.Allow to ferment for 8hrs.Cook the chopped beets for 5mins in the microwave / stove top with half cup water with little salt.Grind the cooked beets to a fine paste.Add this to the batter and mix well.Heat the frying pan on medium heat and spread the batter,make it as thin as possible.Cover  with a lid for 1min(takes longer to cook than regular dosas).Flip the other side and wait till its sightly browned.Serve on a plate and repeat till you finish the batter.

  • Serves 5dosas

    * If you have store brought dosa batter,then you can directly start off with the mixing.
