Breakfast on a Saturday morning …hmm what would I like? Note I asked what would I like not what the ‘kids’ would like. As for them, they just want the usual pancakes and french toast. Going back to my question…let’s see – my husband’s special tomato upma! Which he does so sweetly make on most saturdays and waking up to the aroma of him cooking upma is definitely a perfect start to my weekend 🙂 But every once in a while I also try to make his favorite which are crispy dosas. The traditional dosa recipe needs some advance planning and I do make that regularly too but that is usually for lunch or dinner since I serve them with all the desired accompaniments – sambhaar and chutney and potato masala for masala dosa. So for breakfast it has to be instant dosas! I usually make instant semolina dosas but a while ago, Malar from malar’s kitchen had posted ‘Tomato dosa‘ which I instantly pinned and wanted to give that a try. Well I did try them last weekend with some modifications – Malar had used raw rice and ground them whereas my instant ‘instant’ version uses rice flour and a little bit of semolina. Oh boy, these dosas were so tasty! The hubby and the kids wouldn’t stop eating them.! Believe me, I started getting a little bit frustrated and worried that there wouldn’t be any left for my pics! The dosas were going so fast.! However I did manage to take the pics towards the end 🙂
I am also bringing these crepes to Fiesta Friday this week
This dosa by itself is so tasty – the tomato gives it a nice tang and flavor that no chutney is needed but you can certainly serve it with fresh coconut chutney!
