My hubby dear loves this. He doesn't like poori, but love to have this masala with dosa. Hence every time I prepare poori masala, he will be having only dosa. Anyway I dont like this combo.
This time I prepared only masal for dosa, especially for him(as a thanks note for getting me some nonstick ware).
I prepared masala dosa once. For first dosa, my husband said "Masala is more inside the dosa". For the second dosa, he said "I am searching for the masala inside the dosa". My reaction: Stopped the masala dosa and served this dosa masal. He can take the masala, how much ever he wants.
OK here comes the recipe.
Potato - 4
Onion - 2
Green Chillies - 5
Red Chillies - 2
Curry Leaves and Coriander Leaves - few
Mustard Seeds and Urad dhal - 1 tsp each
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Tomato - 1 (optional)
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Salt - as required.
Boil the potatoes, cool it and mash it gently.
Mince the onion and chillies.
Heat oil in a wok, and season the masal with mustard, urad dhal and cumin seeds.
Add the onion, chillies and saute well till its get cooked well.
Add the potatoes and mix well. Add 1 cup of water, salt and turmeric powder.
Mix well and close with a lid.
It wont take much time to cook. Once it reaches the required consistency, switch off the stove and add the leaves.
My version will be little gravy/watery kind, to serve with dosa.
You can even make it thick and serve it closed inside the dosa. This is what we call masala dosa.
