|Soft and tasty tomato dosa with onion chutney|
Instant Tomato dosa
Dosa Batter – 2 1/4 cup
Tomatoes (medium sized ripe ones) -2
Green chillies – 1-2
Jeera/cumin seeds – 1 tsp
Ginger – 1 inch piece
Mix this with the dosa batter nicely. Our tomato dosa batter is ready. Now we will make dosa. You can add a little finely chopped coriander leaves if preferred.
Heat a non stick tawa or an iron tawa, add a drop of oil and rub with half an onion.(this is done to prevent the dosa from sticking to the tawa)
Pour 1 ladle of batter in the center and spread it in a circular motion.
Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa. Once the dosa is cooked to some extent, flip it over to the other side.

1.Soak all the above ingredients for 3-4 hours except poha. You can soak poha 15 minutes before grinding.
2.Grind separately tomato, green chilli, cumin/jeera seeds and pearl onions to a fine paste. Keep it aside.
After soaking, grind 1 along with poha to a smooth paste. Then add 2 to the ground batter and grind both together for a few minutes. Add salt needed.
Let the batter ferment for 5 hours. Then you can use the batter to make tomato dosa as explained above.
I have tried this method many times. The dosa is very tasty and soft but should be taken hot.
Note – If you like pepper flavor, you can substitute green chillies with whole black pepper.
Both the pictures are dosa made from the first method.
