Dosai, Indian lentil pancake

Submitted by: CCKELLY3

Introduction

I made this from a Gits Mix, which you can get at an Indian market or in the International section of a large supermarket. Normally, these are made on a special pan, called a Tava, but I do them in a smaller size on a hot, non-stick pan. You do need to spray the pan with oil between each pancake, about 1/4 tsp, or they will stick irregardless of the nonstick pan.
These are lentil and rice flour, so no wheat and ideal for those who don't eat it.

Ingredients

    1 7 oz. package of Dosai Mix (200 g)
    2 cups water
    3 tsp olive oil in a Misto Spray, or Pam

Directions

I only use a scant 1/4 cup of batter per dosai, so I stretch the mix to make about 12 small pancakes.

1. Add the dry mix to 2 cups of room temperature water, and stir until smooth. Set aside for 5 minutes to let the baking soda activate.

2. Evenly spray a flat non-stick tava/griddle with about 1/4 tsp oil. Heat on medium flame.

3. When the pan is hot, pour 1/4 cup batter in center and spread quickly outward in a spiral motion (like making crepes) to form a thin pancake about 4-5 inches in diameter. If it sticks at the edges, dot with a little bit of extra oil and cook till golden brown. Using a spatula, carefully fold the Dosai over and lift off the griddle.

Serve hot with chutney or spicy condiment, along with lentils or beans or even a meat dish, in place of bread.
