“Pizza Dosa” or “Dosa Pizza”??
Hmm..I dn’t know how do we name this.Just a modification of Oothappam,a touch of Pizza and a there you have a dosa with a great look(and obviously tasty too).I had some leftover capsium and ripe tomatoes.Since Masala Dosa is a regular weekly dish prepared,and since oothappam is a “hate-dish” for my husband,I thought of adding capsicum to vegetables,which will make the local dish,international;-)
Basic dosa batter
Chilly powder(kashmiri powder preffered)-1/4 tspn
Lemon juice-1/2 tspn
Salt -1/4 tspn
Slice all vegetables into very thin and lengthy pieces.Place all ingredients(except batter) in a pan and saute for few minutes under medium-high flame.You need not add oil .Just keep stirring.When vegetables are half-cooked,remove from fire.
Now,heat the dosa pan.When hot,grease the pan with a tissue paper,dipped in oil.This will help dosa and vegetables from not sticking to the pan.Now keeping the flame on medium heat,pour a ladle of dosa batter,spread into a thickness of medium size.Dn’t make the dosa too thin as for ghee roast,bcoz when vegetables are added,it may break.Now,quickly spread some vegetable mixture on to the dosa,Add some drops of ghee.When the lower surface of dosa is crisp, flip it and cook for 2 more minutes.
Now,instead of removing the dosa using a spatula,just remove the pan from fire and flip dosa on to the plate directly.This will ensure that you have an intact pizza dosa:-)
Serve hot with Coconut chutney and Sambar!!
- You can add nay vegetables of you choice.like,cabbage&carrot.
- You can give a total pizza flavour by adding some cheese,instead of ghee.I used ghee bcoz the smell of ghee coming from hot dosa makes me drool.
Update:I just found that there is a “pizza dosa” recipe already available 😦
