Carrot Wheat Dosa

I tried a variation to the Wheat dosa this time by adding some grated carrots. My son really loved it. So I thought I will add a separate post for this. The below photo is a miny version I made for him. The other photos show the adult size :-)


Wheat Flour 1 cup
Rice Flour 1 cup
Carrots 6 

For Tempering
Channa Dal (this is not part of usual recipe and I once added it by accident. we all love it in the dosa)
Jeera 1 tsp
Hing - little
finely chopped green chillies, curry leaf, ginger

Oil for preparing dosa

Method of Preparation

1. Mix Wheat and Rice flour along with some salt with enough water to make a batter. The batter should slightly on the watery side. Let it sit for 30 min. I tried making it more watery this time than the my usual method. 

2. Grate the carrots and mix with the batter.

3. Heat oil in a kadai and add the channa dal. When it starts to brown, add Jeera, chillies, ginger, curry leaf and hing. When it sizzles, switch off.

4. Once cooled, add the tempering to the batter.

5. I poured the dosa batter randomly like I did for the rava dosa. Add some oil to it.

6. Turn over and cook the other side

7. Serve with chutney and molaga podi.
