|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.
Cook the other side also well and serve hot with any chutney or just idli podi.
Thakkali Dosai recipe -2

For grinding separately
Tomato – 2
Green chilli – 3-4
Jeera/ cumin seeds – 1 tsp
Pearl onions – 4-5 (optional)
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.

I tried the method written here.. but i made the batter more watery than required..will it even ferment? How to rectify ?
If the batter is too watery, it is difficult to rectify it. Try adding rice flour or make another set of batter and mix both well.
