DOSA GALORE; RAVE DOSE, MOONG, MASOOR AND BROWN RICE ADAI WITH KARELA MASALA!


My Dosa galore post goes to "Dosa Mela" and to Srivalli from "cooking for all 4 seasons", who calls herself a "dosa freak" and is calling all of us to send her loads of dosas!!:D
I added two more new dosas to your list Sri. Enjoy them all to your heart's content my friend! Hahaha!




Rave dose, restaurant style!!
I accidentally found this recipe or the way of making restaurant style Rava dosa while I was surfing on the net one day. Vahchef Sunjay Thumma, has become my favorite chef on the "youtube" world since then for showing us the authentic dishes as they cook in the restaurants. His way of making rava dosa absolutely fascinated me. Just look at the result! (Click on all the photos to enlarge them to see better pictures)

rave dose
I was skeptical at first. When I tried his way sprinkling the very thin dosa batter with a lacy pattern using your hand on a electric griddle, which is perfect to make a huge, thin, crispy rava dosa, I was in for a delightful surprise! It looked exactly like they serve in the restaurant, crispy and tasted delicious. I changed the recipe a bit, added the dry spices instead of fresh to keep the batter smooth and easy to sprinkle, didn't use the raw onion. Here is how I made it with some changes of my own, I thank chef Thumma for showing us the secret of restaurant style Rava dosa and other dishes too!:)

To watch Vahchef's "Rava Dosa" video demo, click here.
The Vendy award (award for the best street Vendor of New York)2007, runner up; The dosa man, Tiru kumar!! Watch him here and here and here!

To make Rava dosa:
1. Mix 1 cup fine rava/Semolina/cream of wheat, 1/4 cup plain flour, 1 cup rice flour, salt, 1 tsp of cumin powder, 1/2 tsp each of garlic pd, ginger pd, chilli pd, 1 tbsp onion pd with enough water (3 or more cups) or buttermilk to make a very thin batter with buttermilk consistency. (Watch the video to see how thin and how to sprinkle the batter on the griddle).
2. Heat the non-stick electric griddle on moderately high/375F to 400F heat, sprinkle the batter with your hand or use a plastic Mustard or Ketchup bottle to squeeze the batter out like I did (cut the tip off if the hole too small) and let it get crispy golden on the bottom, no flipping required. Drizzle oil or ghee on top. Serve right away. (Mix the batter well or shake the bottle every time you use it. Rava tends to sink in the bottom)

Tastes excellent just with thin and spicy coconut chutney to dip in. I served it with Sambhar, coconut chutney and some homemade ghee. Hope you try.

Spicy green Moong, Masoor dal and brown rice Adai:
I love Adai because of the ease of making them without fermentation and very nutritious as well. I keep adding different pulses and beans, this is one of those with Masoor dal, green Moong and brown rice. It has a beautiful pinkish green color inside. Adjust the spices to your taste.



To make Adai:

1. Soak 1/2 cup whole green Moong in water overnight. Next morning, add 1/2 cup Masoor dal (split red lentils) and 1 cup Brown rice to the same water and let it soak for 2 hrs.
2. After 2 hrs, drain the water and grind all these in batches with enough water, 1 tbsp cumin seeds, 1/4tsp turmeric, 2-3 red dry chillies or chill pd, salt, few curry leaves until you get smooth batter of pourable consistency.
3. Take the batter out into a bowl, add 1 tbsp chopped cilantro and a pinch of baking soda.
4. You can use this batter right way to make dosas or chill in the fridge to use later. Add soda just before making dosas.
5. Heat a iron tawa or non-stick griddle, add some oil, spread a ladleful of batter to a circle. Drizzle some ghee or oil on top, flip and cook both sides until crisp and golden.

Serve with red Chutney powder (
roasted dry coconut, red chillies, garlic or garlic pd, salt, hing, cumin seeds, ground) and ghee.

Karela Masala
is my second entry to Pooja of "creative Pooja" blog's "Vegetable of the week" event. She has chosen "Bitter Gourd/Karela" as her vegetable for this month. You can have this too from me Pooja!:))





Karela/Bitter Gourd masala:
I somehow manage to eat few tbsps of Bitter gourd dish every time I make Bitter Gourd dishes although when cooked and balanced with spices, it won't be as bitter to taste. My husband loves Karela dishes, so I do buy just two of them to cook whenever I can get them in the Indian store. This Karela masala dish comes with a delicious gravy, goes well with rice rottis usually or rice if you can handle it! :D


To make Karela masala:
1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick pan. When hot,put in 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp cumin seeds, few curry leaves, 1 red chilli.
2. Add in 1 medium onion,chopped, fry for 2 min. Add in 2 finely chopped garlic, 1/4 tsp turmeric pd, pinch of salt, stir fry for a minute.
3. To this, add 2 cups of slightly peeled and chopped Bitter gourd pieces and fry until it gets a reddish color on the edges. Add salt and 1 tbsp tamarind juice.
4. Pour in 1/2 cup tomato sauce or 2 chopped Tomatoes, 1 tbsp coriander seeds powder, 2 tsp cumin seeds powder, 1/2 tsp chilli pd,
1 tbsp or more to of powdered Jaggery. stir fry and simmer until oil shows on top. Add some water it's too thick and simmer again.
5. Adjust the heat and sourness in the gravy, tastes good the next day. Add 1 tsp of ghee on top and few tbsps of chopped cilantro, mix and serve.


Long beans Kootu, Eggplant Pachadi, Karela Masala served with plantation style Akki/rice rotti:


Recipes for the other dishes you see on the Thali are here:
For Yardlong beans Kootu dish, click here or you can use this kootu masala to cook with Yardlong beans too. Yardlong beans are also called Mangaluru beans in Kannada.
For Eggplant chutney/Pachadi/bajji recipe, click here.

That's "all" I have this week, Phew! :D

Oh, I thought your sister is already there. My kids spring break starts here on Friday. I will relax a bit and enjoy. Have fun with Sha, teach her some cooking or baking if she is interested, helps her in college!:)

Asha said...

Shalini, my first dosa didn't come out well either.I had thin it a bit more. Just adjust the heat a bit and try again with a small amount until you get it. It's really easy and very crispy once you get it.Hope you do, electric griddle is best to use with this too.
See in May, will miss you. Hugs to you!:)

Trupti said...

nice collection of Dosas & Karela Sabji looks delicious

Shilpa said...

Thats an awesome spread Asha. I will try the moong, masoor dosa. I usually make with moong but never mixed both. Thanks for sharing.

Asha said...

Thanks Trupti, hope you try the Karela! Good to see you girl, hope you are doing well!:))

KayKat said...

I love that you watch cooking videos online - that's a whole different league of food obsession :)

And the Asha trend of fabulous diverse food feasts continues :)

These look insanely good - makes me crave some adai for lunch!

Asha said...

lol! Thank you Kay!! My husband says the same thing too! "Food, food all the time, can't you blog something else?" And I say "NO WAY"! ;P
Try a few Kay, molasses and coconut pancakes are yummy, so are Jackfruit ones. Enjoy!:)

Maya said...

Whoaaaaa...I saw the title and expected to see about 2 dosas here, but was in for a huge spread here. EXCELLENT!! I like some tips and recipes frm Vahchef too..Rava dosa (infact, all the dosas), look really good...

Asha said...

Haha! Actually I did make just 2 new dosas for her and the rest I dragged them out of my blogs!Even I didn't know I had posted so many dosas! ;D
Vahchef is really good, isn't he? No pretenses or ordinary recipes, I like most of them. I haven't checked his new videos lately.
Enjoy Maya!:)

TBC said...

I love dosas and can have'em every single day. You have a great collection here.
The "Dosa Man" was featured on one of Rachel Ray's shows. That's when I first heard about him.:-)

Susan from Food Blogga said...

Enjoy your time off, Asha. You will be missed. :)

Linda said...

Asha, thank you so much for introducing me to the Vendy awards! Street cart food is one of the best things about NYC, and I never knew such an award existed. How fun! Now, forget the dosa man winning runner up (but good on him!). How about a dosa award for you!! :)

Ramya's Mane Adige said...

wow!!!!!!!!!!! Amazing collection of dosas n pancakes, Ashakka... I admire your patience and enthu...You are the best!!!

Asha said...

tbc, you will love Sri's dosa mela round up then. I make dosas once in 10days or so. I like Dosas but kids are not into it, they like North Indian food like parathas etc.
Enjoy all the dosas here too!:)

Thank you Susan. I will enjoy the break, much needed one too. You too have a wonderful Spring time there, at last Winter is almost over for us! See you in May :)

Asha said...

Linda, Tirukumar looks like a great guy with big smile on his face!:)
Next time we go there, got to look for him and taste his dosas.
"Bloggy Dosa award" should go to Shilpa and Sri.They have more variety of dosas than me! We should make one and give it to them. What say? :))

You are a sweetheart Ramya, thank you girl. Even I didn't realize I had so many in my 2 blogs, kept looking and linking them! Hahaha!
Enjoy, will see you later!:)

Pravs said...

Wow, this is a grand glory for variety of dosa's. Rava dosa has come out so beautifully. Have to check the video to see how it is done.

Richa said...

whoaaaa! what a collection :)
love both idli & dosa anytime! i liked the addition of masoor in adai, that is a light dal, excellent variation! i'll try that next time :)

Asha said...

Pravs, do try. It's easy to understand by watching the video than explaining it. They are really yummy!:)

Richa, Masoor dal gives it a beautiful pinkish color too, I loved it. Hope you try!:)

Meeta said...

Oh my that is a dosa galore alright! I have never tried making dosa myself. I do not have the right equipment but I do so badly want to give it a go - just to try out some of your lovely recipes!

Suganya said...

OMG Asha, the dosas are so lacy. The chef's technique is awesome. Let me see his other videos. Thanks for the link.

Asha said...

Meeta, you just need a good quality non-stick griddle for making sure pancakes or dosas doesn't stick to the pan. Other than that you can easily use wheat flour or plain flour with Semolina to make dosas. Try it. You tried Pooris, this is easier than that!:))

Suganya, enjoy! He has many many dishes you would love including non-veg. I like the way he explains and teaches us too, simple genuine guy!:)

Pooja V said...

I am so hungry for dosas now. I have absolutely loved everytypw of dosa here. I off to soak some lentils for dosa.

Enjoy, try the rava dosa, it's yummy!:)

VINI said...

I definitely didn't fall asleep Asha, but I' am sitting and staring at your posts in AWE! :) how do you do this? You are the soper'coolest' blog lady I've ever come across!!!!!!
By the way, I regularly visit vahrevah.com and I did try the rava dosa after I bought my presto non-stick griddle. Turned out well.

Asha said...

HeHe!! Glad you are awake. Not everybody like Dosas (like my kids!:D) but I love it and make once in 2 weeks or so. My Mysore grandparents make these EVERY DAY! Electric griddle is the best to make multiple dosas, love it!:)
Thank you Vini, see you in May. Will miss ya.

Vani said...

Love your dosa galore, Ash! Lots of very different pancakes/dosas. The crispy rawa dosa looks restaurant-like! Nice post! Hope u r having a blast at the beach! :)

Asha said...

Enjoy Vani, try this rave dose, really good. Yes, we are enjoying the beach and (relatively) warm weather too, planning to watch a movie today!:)

Anjali said...

Asha your dosa museum is awesome...do you see my dropped jaw? Kudos to you!

Asha said...

lol! Yeah, I can see it!

Thanks Anjali.I didn't have much time cook more dosas before I went of on a break,so listed everything I already have in my blogs for Sri!:))

LG said...

woowwww..Ashakka, 20 different types of dosas and you were still left with some to make? Gr8! That rave dose looks so crisp n thin..good one! I have seekarane for that lovely dose on my blog :D

Asha said...

Hi Lakshmi, how are you? I will look at that seekarane, will be back blogging on the 30th. Spring allergy makes eyes itch and water if I look PC more tan 10 mins right now!:)

Anonymous said...

Very nice post..Can you please tell me which brand electric griddle did you use. I bought presto 22inch electric griddle but the heat is not enough and dosa's are white. Your dosa's looks perfect.

Asha said...

Hi Anon, I have the same Presto 22" griddle as you too!:D
It doesn't have any heating elements in the middle, so center do tend to remain cooler in middle.
I heat the griddle up until 400F first for 5-7mins and turn down to 360-375F or so. When sides of dosas are reddish and crispy, I slide the center of the dosa to the sides of the griddle for a minute or so. You have to adjust the heat as you cook, bit tricky but works. Hope you try this next time to get a golden dosa!:))

Uj said...

Made Rava dosa today and it came out really good. The video is of great help to know the consistency of batter. I followed to T the recipe and the result was crispy resturant style dosa. Love the tip of using ketchup bottle to sprinkle the batter. Thanks a lot dear for posting this recipe

Asha said...

You are welcome Uj, glad you tries it and liked it too. It's truly comes out like restaurant Rava dosa. I love it too. Happy thanksgiving to you and family, enjoy! :))

KGG said...

thank you so much for these. i live somewhere you can't get boiled rice, or even urad dal! the confirmation that it's possible to make different types of dosas is great.

Asha said...

K, I can understand how frustrating it is not to get rice or Urad dal when you love to make dosas! Enjoy the other dosas!:)
