Mushroom Dosa

There are so many varieties of dosa that we wouldn't know when to stop our counting.Most breakfasts in TamilNadu are made using the same idli/ dosa batter. Large quantities of batter are ground and stored in a refrigerator for about a week and make something new out of it everyday.This is another variety of dosa which i used to make once a week and my all time favorite too.Goes well with all type of chutneys especially coriander and mint chutney.


Dosa batter

(For filling)
Chopped mushroom - 1cup
Cumin seeds - 1/2tsp
Green chili - 2
Chopped onion - 1/2cup
Chopped tomato - 1/2cup
Chili and coriander powder - 2tsp
Garam masala - 1tsp
Coriander leaves

Heat oil in pan add cumin seeds and allow to sputter.Than add chopped green chillies,onion and fry till onion get cooked.Now add the tomatos and saute it for a while.Add the chopped mushroom and close the lid.Let it cook for 5mins.After 5 mins add all the masalas and if necessary add some water and cook until the raw smell gone.Finally add some coriander leaves and remove from the fire.

Pour a ladle of batter on the Dosa tawa, spread it and add oil on the sides. After a few minutes turn it on to the other side. When done , Turn again and spread mushroom masala on one side. Bring the other side of dosa up and close the stuffing. Cook for another minute and serve with chutney.

I am sending this dosa as my entry to Srivalli's Dosa mela.
