Kodhumai Dosai with Thengai Pottukadalai Chutney

Hi guys. Sorry I posted the same post previously but dont know wat was the problem, the post did not get updated in the reading list. So I deleted the previous post and tried re-posting it again and it is working fine now. Chitra and Neha Thanks for ur quick responses. I am reposting ur comments here. Thanks again guys.
Projects are going pretty hectic @ office and I am turning up late every day while Mr.A reaches home even before the sun goes down. Hectic projects are leading to lazy and tired evenings and minimalism in dinner ideas. This recipe is one such easy and quick dinner combo which I am preferring a lot these days. When I was in a mom’s house, if ever she made Godhumai dosai for evening dinner I would prefer going to bed empty stomach rather than having this. But now-a-days, I prefer this for its simplicity and healthiness (.. and my laziness).

~*What U Need*~
For Wheat Crepes:
Wheat / Atta flour – 2 cups
Water – as needed
Salt – to taste

For Chutney:
Grated Coconut – ½ cup
Roasted Channa dhal – 1 handful
Green chilly – 1
Salt – to taste
Water – as needed

For tempering:
Oil – 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Shallots – 6
Curry Leaves – 1 sprig
Dried red chilly – 1

How I made it:
Mix all the ingredients mentioned in Wheat crepes part and bring it to dosa batter consistency adding sufficient amount of water.
Heat the dosa kal. Pour one spoonful of batter and smear it around to form a dosa.
When brown, turn it upside down and cook the other side.
Remove and repeat the above with the remaining batter.

To make the chutney,

blend all the ingredients in the Chutney section into a smooth paste adding water as required. If required you can temper this chutney.
Chop the onions into small pieces. Heat oil in a kadai, Add the mustard seeds and allow to splutter. Then add in the curry leaves and dried red chilly. Add in the chopped shallots and fry till golden brown. Pour this into the chutney and mix well.

You can use this chutney for dosas/idlis/vadas… I just love this with Ulundu / Urad dhal vadas… They make a lovely combination.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
