Instant Chakuli

I have been thinking about exploring the Oriya Cusine (Cuisine from the eastern state of Orissa in India). So when Srivalli announced one of the themes as 3-course regional cuisine, I chose to make an Oriya breakfast for 3 days.

So for the next 3 days look out for those as part of BM #29. Here is an Oriya Dosa for Day 1 of Week 3.

Ingredients - 

Besan / Chick Pea Flour 1/2 cup
Semolina / Sooji / Rava 1/2 cup
Maida / All Purpose Flour 1/2 cup
Onions, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Green Chillies, finely chopped 1 tsp (or to taste)
Salt as needed
Water for the batter as needed

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add the chick pea flour, sooji, all purpose flour and salt.

Mix in the onions and green chillies. Gradually add water and mix to get a pancake batter consistency.

Heat a griddle and pour 2 ladle fulls of batter and spread it out into a thin circle (like a dosa). Spray a few drops of oil and let it cook.

After the underside is cooked, flip it and let the second side cook.

Remove and continue with the rest of the batter.

Serve hot with chutney of your choice. Traditionally it is served with any sweet pickle.
