When children come home after school in south India and peek into the kitchen to see what is waiting for them, the answer they yearn for is “Moru Moru Dosa” or crisp dosa! This recipe shows you a quick-fix dosa recipe, which tastes even better than the regular fermented batter dosa. Made with rice flour, semolina and plain flour held together with curds and water, this crispy dosa gets its amazing flavour from an assortment of ingredients like green chillies and coconut, and an aromatic tempering. Although the amount of batter looks to be too much, you can prepare only 13 dosas with it, because the thin batter is poured over the tava rather than the usual method of spreading it. These dosas are also big and filling!
- Combine the rice flour, semolina, plain flour, curds, coconut, coriander, green chillies, salt and 4¾ cups of water in a deep bowl and mix well. Keep the mixture aside.
- Heat the oil in a small non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the curry leaves and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
- Pour the tempering over the mixture and mix well. Cover with a lid and keep aside to ferment for 30 minutes.
- Add another ½ cup of water and mix well.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it lightly using little oil
- Sprinkle a little water on it and wipe it off gently using a cloth.
- Pour ½ cup of the batter on it and lightly tilt the tava immediately.
- Smear a little oil on it and along the edges and cook on a high flame till the dosa turns brown in colour and crisp from one side.
- Turn over and cook on another side till it turns light brown in colour.
- Fold over to make a semi-circle or a roll.
- Repeat steps 6 to 11 to make 12 more dosas.
- Serve immediately.
