1/2 tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)
1/2 tsp split urad dal (split black lentils)
1 tsp finely chopped green chillies
7 to 8 curry leaves (kadi patta)
1/2 cup thinly sliced onions

1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
1 tsp lemon juice
a pinch of sugar
1 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)

Other Ingredients
1 1/2 cups readymade dosa batter
salt to taste
9 tsp butter for greasing and cooking

For Serving
coconut chutney

Method
For the masala

  1. Heat the oil in a kadhai and add the mustard seeds.
  2. When the seeds crackle, add the urad dal and sauté on a medium flame for 30 seconds.
  3. Add the green chillies, curry leaves and onions and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the potatoes, salt, turmeric powder, lemon juice and sugar, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the coriander, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  6. Allow it to cool.
  7. Once cooled, mash lightly with the back of the spoon and keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Combine the dosa batter, salt and a little water, mix well and keep aside.
  2. Heat a tava /non-stick tava (griddle), grease it lightly with ¼ tsp butter, sprinkle a little water on it (it should sizzle immediately) and wipe off using a wet piece of cloth.
  3. Pour ¼th of the batter on the tava (griddle) and spread in a circular motion to make a 175 mm. (7") thin dosa.
  4. Smear 2 tsp of butter on the edges of the dosa
  5. Spread ¼th of the prepared masala evenly over the dosa using a spatula and cook till the dosa turns golden brown in colour.
  6. Fold over while pressing it lightly, using a spatula to make a flat roll.
  7. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 3 more dosas.
  8. Serve immediately with coconut chutney.

superb masala dosa recipe! I had never made it at home before so was doubtful about the result..but it turned out very well! Loved the well spiced masala and the softness of the dosas!
