Here is yet another Dosa for breakfast/dinner.  The most uninteresting conversation at home is 'What to make for breakfast?'. The usual reply is 'What are my options?'. That is the one which ticks me off :)  What do you do when you get a question as an answer to your question? I crack my brains, search for something new/healthy/interesting on the web and make it for breakfast and be done with it!!  One such quest led me to this recipe which paved the way to a happy ending to the conversation!! 

Ulli Karam Dosa

Recipe Source - Here

Chana Dal 1/4 cup
Toor Dal 1/4 cup
Brown Rice 1/4 cup (Normal rice can also be used)
Masala To Grind - 
Onions Chopped 1/2 cup
Red Chillies 2-3  (or as per taste)
Coconut Grated 3 Tbsp (I used frozen and thawed)
Tamarind juice 2-3 tsp (or as per taste)
Fresh Coriander leaves Chopped  Tbsp (Optional)
Salt to taste

Method Of Preparation - 

Soak Chana Dal, Toor Dal and Rice for 5-6 hrs and grind into a fine paste adding as much water as needed. Set the batter aside aside for an hour or so.

Grind the Onion Masala (Ulli karam) using all the ingredients listed under 'Masala To Grind'.

Mix the masala and the batter well. Adjust salt as needed.

In a heated tawa/griddle pour ladle full of batter and spread into a thin circle. Drizzle oil if needed (I don't use oil on a non stick pan). Let it cook on both sides.

Remove after both the sides are cooked and continue for the rest of the batter.

Serve it with Chutney of your choice. I served mine with Zucchini Chutney.
