Fluffy Tomato dosa

This dosa is soft ,light and fluffy .."melt-in-your-mouth" dosa and there is no better way to describe it. The softness is amazing and the mild flavour with a hint of tomato and chilly is what makes you go back for more and more.Earlier i have tried one more version of this,a simple neer dosa with tomato and red chillies .But this time thought of trying something different !
  • 2cups Dosa rice
  • 4-5 Tomatoes,chopped
  • 6-7 Dried Kashmiri Red chilly (whole)
  • 2 cups Butter milk
  • 2tbsp Beaten rice/Poha
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1/2tsp Cooking Soda /baking soda
Cooking Directions
  1. Wash rice and beaten rice separately,under running water.
  2. Soak both together with 2 cups of butter milk for one hour ( you can add little water if needed)
  3. Now grind soaked rice along with chopped tomatoes and chillies to smooth batter. Grind, adding a little Water at a time.
  4. Once the batter is ground fine, transfer to a bowl and add additional Water. Total 3 cups ( approximately) of Water.
  5. Add Salt and soda ,mix well.
  6. Heat a flat non-stick pan or griddle on low-medium heat.
  7. Once hot, drop a few drops of Oil on the skillet .Drop a ladle full of batter and do not spread it,let it spread it by it self.
  8. Drop a few drops of Oil around the edges of the dosa, cover and allow to cook for a couple of minutes.
  9. Remove lid, with a flat spatula, loosen the edges and transfer to a plate.
  10. Serve hot with Chutney, Sambar or plain butter

  1. adding less Water in the beginning, helps grind better.
  2. It is a very delicate dosa and does need careful handling.
