Sooji Dosa

Sooji 1/4 Cup
Maida / Plain Flour 2 Tbsps
Plain Yogurt 2 Tbsps
Cumin Seeds 1/8 tsp
Green Chiles 1 – 2
Curry Leaves few Sprigs
Salt to taste
Oil few tsps
Method of preparation:
Remove stems, wash and finely chop the green chiles.
Wash and tear the curry leaves.
In a mixing bowl, mix together sooji, plain flour, yogurt, green chiles, curry leaves, cumin seeds and salt.
Add enough water to make it somewhat thin batter.
Leave the batter aside for around 20 minutes.
Adjust the consistency of the batter with water so that it is thin and pour-able.
Heat a flat pan on medium high heat, apply few drops of oil with back of a spoon.
When pan gets hot, pour a ladle full of sooji dosa batter on pan in circular motions.
Make sure batter is thin enough that it makes small holes when batter hits the hot pan.
Try to fill up any big holes and form into around 6 inch diameter dosa.
Don’t spread the dosa with back of the ladle.
Fry on low – medium flame till bottom side starts to turn golden brown.
Pour few drops of oil around the dosa and turn on other side.
Reduce the heat a bit and cook on this side for around a minute before removing from heat.
Repeat the same with remaining sooji dosa batter.
Serve sooji dosa with sambar or w
ith any chutney of your choice.
