Traditional masala dosa for the batter, chutney and stuffing are heart healthy without compromise on taste! Traditional masala dosa for the batter, chutney and stuffing are heart healthy without compromise on taste!
Number of Servings: 12


    Batter recipe comes from my Uncle's restaurant in Bombay:

    Split black gram (urad dal), 100 grams 1/2 cup(
    Split chick peas (chana dal - split pigeon peas or tuar dal is OK too), 2.5 oz, 1/3 cup
    Aromatic Basmati Rice, white or brown, uncooked, 1 cup
    Split Green Gram (Mung Dal) Dry, 0.3 cup Salt, .5 tsp
    Soak all the dry ingredients for 3-4 hours and blend smooth with water as needed to make a dosa batter. Let stand in a dry, warm and dark place (oven is great) overnight. Best if soaked in the morning, blended after 3 p.m. and prepared for brunch or breakfast the next morning. Add salt and stir well prior to making dosa. Makes 12 dosas with 1/2 cup of batter for each one.

    Bhaji or stuffing:
    Cauliflower, raw, 5.5 cup
    Onions, raw, 2 cup, chopped
    Green Hot Chili Peppers, 3 pepper
    Red Hot Chili Peppers, 1 pepper
    Mustard seed, yellow, 1 tsp
    Turmeric, ground, .5 tsp
    Peanuts, dry-roasted, 1 oz
    Fresh curry leaves 1 sprig about 12 leaves
    Urad dal 1/2 tbsp
    Chana dal 1.5 tbsp
    Olive oil 1 Tbsp
    Cilantro fresh chopped 1/4 cup for garnish.

    Chutney by Viju, Cousin's wife slightly changed.
    Coconut, raw, 1 cup, shredded
    Tofu, extra firm, 0.2 block
    *Coriander seed, 1 tbsp
    Green Peppers (bell peppers), 0.5 cup, chopped
    Baby Carrots, raw, 3 large
    *Hot Chili Peppers, 3 pepper
    Tamarinds1 fruit use 1/4 tsp of Tamco paste.
    Olive Oil, 1 tsp
    Mustard seed, yellow, 1 tsp
    Salt, 1 dash or to taste.
    Chana dalia ( roasted split chick peas from Indian store) 1 oz. 1/4 cup

    6 Tsp for 12 dosas, or you may use a non-stick pan with Pam spray.



This is not an easy recipe for a beginner, unless you know Dosa how to's. Instead of potatoes, cauliflower has been used to reduce the carbs in bhaji. IF you want to further reduce the carbs for DIABETICS in the batter, use 1/2 cup rice only and increase all the other ingredients to make up.

If you knew dosa how-to's all you need are the ingredients which are listed ;-)

Serves 6 at 2 large dosas each filled with almost 1/2 a cup of bhaji and 2 tbsp. chutney on the side.

Number of Servings: 12
