Onion Dosa

Me and my husband love dosas than idly :) I recently had onion dosa in a restaurant in bangalore and just loved it for the taste. Nowadays i have developed the habit of researching anything that i eat outside for the ingredients and the method. This recipe came out like that. Please try it and i'm sure you will love it. :)

Items required:

Dosa batter
Onion, Green chillies, Corriander leaves - finely chopped
Grated coconut - small amount.
Mustard seeds, urad dhal, Jeera and till - for seasoning


Heat little oil in a kadai and add all the items for seasoning. Now mix it with chopped onion, green chilly and corriander leaves. Add the grated coconut also to the mix. Sprinkle very little amount of salt and mix it well and keep it aside.

Now heat dosa pan and spread little oil on it. Once the pan is hot enough sprinkle water on the dosa pan. Now spread a dosa on the pan and add oil on the dosa border. Let the dosa be little thicker. Now spread the onion-tadka-coconut mixture on the dosa and spray little oil on them. With the help of dosa karandi, press the onions slightly so that it gets sticked to the dosa nicely.

Once one side of the dosa is cooked, slowly turn the dosa to the other side and press the dosa gently. Keep the flame little high so that the onions become crispier. Now remove the dosa from the pan.

Delicious onion dosa is ready to be served with coconut chutney.

Note: Non-stick dosa pan is the best and after the onion part of the dosa is cooked, i just slide the dosa to the plate gently and not use the karandi to take it out. Using karandi may take off the onion layer from the dosa. Also grated carrot can also be used to the mix.

Try this and let me know your comments :)
