Bread Dosa ~ 101 Dosa Varieties!

I actually had lot of plans by the time I reached 400 recipes. But things didn't work out as I planned. I guess those things have to wait! Anyway I am happy that my 400th recipe is all a dosa, that too a quick one! When you have extra bread on hand and not sure how to make use of it, this dosa recipe comes handy! But of course we tried with fresh ones and it was even tastier. Actually it called for Wheat coarse grains, more like the Samba Wheat. But we thought we shall just replace it with Wheat flour to make things easier. Maybe we will with samba next time but this was yummy! Also its kind of soft and not the crispy one, but with little more water and cooking on sim might get you a crispy dosa. I like my dosa in all forms. So it doesn't really matter for me. But hubby dear likes his dosa to be crispy. So had to convince him saying its more tasty as soft.

I made these only for us and kids had the regular dosas. They almost have dosas every other day. Thinking of them reminds me of Chinnu's naughty deed the other day. They are very happy going to the school by Auto. Chinnu, though very naughty, is silent when in presence of new people. But the other day, they had a new friend to accompany them in the auto. It was a little girl, must've been the twins age or so. And Athamma was shocked to find Chinnu kissing her through the way. Normally he never bothers about the other kids, but not sure why he did that. It was a breaking news when we got home and Athamma was going on telling us about this. When we asked Chinnu, he was laughing and nodding his head. We are not sure if he understood what we asked, but it was fun seeing his reaction!


Soaking time : 3 hrs
Preparation Time : 10
Cooking Time : 2 min for each
Makes : 8 dosas

Ingredients Needed:

Wheat Flour- 1 cup
All purpose flour/ Maida - 1 cup
Rava / Semolina - 1 cup
Yogurt / Curd - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Cooking Soda - a pinch
Bread - 2 - 3 slices

Ingredients Needed:

In a bowl, take all the flours and mix well with salt and soda. Heat little water and once its hot, dip the bread slices in it and add to the flours. Mix well without lumps. Add water slowly to mix everything evenly. The consistency should be a thin batter. When you take a ladle of batter and pour, it should fall freely and not be thick.

Allow it to soak for 3 hrs max. Then mix once again. And heat a dosa pan or tawa.

Smear oil on the pan so that the dosa comes out well. Pour a ladle full of batter in a circle movement and spread to form a circle.

If you are not getting the dosa in the regular form, pour in circular and spread to form a dosa. Sprinkle oil on top and let it get cooked in sim. Should not cover this.

Serve with Coconut Chutney.

It came out very tasty, though it was soft. So this is going to be surely made again.
