Spring Dosa

BM # 52   Week 1   Day 3

My hubby is a hard core fan of South Indian cuisine and specially Dosas. Normally I make masala dosas and the masala is that of potatoes , but sometimes I find that very boring and prefer a Spring Dosa. Spring Dosas are very popular in Mumbai and it has a delicious stuffing. The stuffing includes, shredded cabbage, carrot , capsicum and coconut. The spices are moderate and somehow this is light on the tummy too.

I made this Dosa along with some Sambar and two delicious chutneys. The chutney recipes were given by our dear friend Padma , which will come up soon. This is my post under weekend dinner for Day 3 , BM # 52. 

 1 cup Dosa Batter

1 onion , sliced
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
Pinch asafoetida
Few curry leaves
1-4 tsp Bengal gram
1/4 tsp white gram 
2 whole red chillies, broken
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup cabbage, shredded
1/2 cup carrot, julienned
1 /2 cup capsicum, julienned
Salt to taste
