A properly made crisp and savory Indian dosa made from Chettinad Dosa Batter is wonderfully delicious, With a traditional spicy potato filling, dosas makes a perfect vegetarian breakfast.
Step 1: Go to your nearest store and buy a packet of Chettinad Dosa Batter
Step 2: Make the potato filling (Ingredients below): Put ghee in a wide skillet over medium heat. When oil is wavy, add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Wait for seeds to pop, about 1 minute, then add red peppers and onion. Cook, stirring until onions have softened, about 5 minutes. Season lightly with salt. Add turmeric, asafetida, ginger, curry leaves, garlic and green chile. Stir to coat and let sizzle for 1 minute.
Ingredients for Potato filling:
3 tablespoons ghee or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
½ teaspoon cumin seeds
2 small dried hot red peppers
1 medium onion, diced
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon turmeric
Pinch of asafetida
1 tablespoon grated ginger
6 to 8 curry leaves
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 small green chiles, finely chopped
1 ½ pounds yellow-fleshed potatoes, such as Yukon Gold, boiled, peeled and cubed
½ cup roughly chopped cilantro, leaves and tender stems
Step 3: Add potatoes and 1/2 cup water. Cook, stirring well to combine, until liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Mash potatoes a bit with the back of a wooden spoon. Season well with salt, add cilantro, then set aside at room temperature. (Potato filling may be prepared up to a day in advance.)
Step 4: To make dosas, set a griddle or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Brush with about 1 teaspoon vegetable oil. Ladle 1/4 cup of Chettinad idli dosa batter in the center of griddle. Using bottom of ladle, quickly spread batter outward in a circular motion to a diameter of about 7 inches. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon oil over the top. Leave dosa batter to brown gradually until outer edges begin to look dry, about 2 minutes, cooking on one side only. With a spatula, carefully loosen dosa from griddle. Bottom should be crisp and beautifully browned. Spoon 1/2 cup potato filling onto top of dosa, centering it as a strip in the middle of the round dosa. Flatten the potato mixture slightly. Using the spatula, fold the sides of the dosa around the filling to make a cylindrical shape. Serve immediately. Continue making dosas one at a time.
