This is a quick and instant dosa made with bread that does not need any planning or preparation like soaking rice and dal, grinding, fermenting etc. Well, you cannot compare this with the regular South Indian Plain Dosa or uthappam but you can definitely try this for a change once in a while. Kids love colors and variety. If you serve them the same bread toast or sandwich, they will complain of boring repeated breakfast. They will love, if the same bread is given differently. This bread uthappam can also be served as an after school snack. Today we will learn how to make bread uthappam or pancake following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.
Finely chop onion and green chillies. (you can omit green chillies for small kids). Grate carrot and keep it ready.
Tear up the bread slices into small or medium pieces.
In a blender, add the bread pieces, curd, somolina (ravai/sooji), ginger paste, rice flour, all purpose flour/maida, water and salt needed.
Blend to a fine paste. Pour the batter in a shallow bowl. The consistency of the batter should neither be too thick nor thin. Add onion, green chilli, carrot, coriander leaves, tomato and mix well.
Heat a tawa and pour a ladle of batter. You cannot spread this batter like the regular dosa. For kids, make small dosas like I have made. If it is for adults, you can spread a little and make it slightly bigger.
Drizzle 1/2 tsp of oil around the dosas. Once cooked, flip it over to the other side, add another 1/2 tsp of oil and cook until golden brown.
Serve hot with tomato chutney. You can decorate the dosas as you like and surprise your little ones.
Note - This dosa has to be served hot. The batter cannot be stored and has to be used immediately after mixing. That is the reason, I have given measurement for very less quantity.
You can add capsicum (all colors), grated beetroot, tomato (without seeds), finely chopped coriander or mint leaves.
For Bread Dosa- omit the vegetables and make plain dosa.
