cauliflower-masala-dosa-recipe
 I had cauliflower masala dosa when I was studying +1 in a restaurant in Salem. It was a treat by my close  friend. Those days we rarely go to restaurants,may be yearly twice or thrice. That’s it! And I will be totally flattered by all the masala smells we get in restaurantsDrooling,as we use less of the masalas at our home,which I had mentioned earlier too. So this masala dosa was tasting and smelling like heaven to me.  The after that I never got a chance to eat.

Then after coming here to SG I happened to see cauliflower masala dosa on menu card in a restaurant. I forgot the name of the restaurant and was breaking my head Time outto remember,but sorry I couldn’t. But always I wanted to try at home and post it here. I made this monday and immediately after clicking,just sat and ate it heartily Oh go on,in-fact,I hurried to finish clicking and ate it. Already my kid is very fond of cauliflower,and then dosa too…So he just loved it. The smell was lingering in my hands! I will sure make this very often here after.

  7. To make dosa, spread the dosa thin and cook until crisp in medium flame with little oil drizzled over.. No need to flip the dosa, just spread little masala over one half and close by covering the other half  of the dosa over the masala.
  8. dosa

Notes
Tips for making perfect dosa!

  • For making dosa with the batter, I always take required amount of the batter in a bowl and mix 1/4 cup water.
  • This makes it easy to spread the dosa in the dosa pan and also gets easily cooked as its thin, lacy and need not be flipped.
  • If you flip the dosa the crispness gets reduced.
  • Always wait for the dosa pan to get hot, spread the dosa,then drizzle oil. If you grease with oil first, its not that so easy to spread the dosa evenly/smoothly.
  • Cook in medium flame to make the dosa crisp.
  • I have used tandoori masala powder you can skip that and use garam masala and use ginger garlic paste while making the masala.

Serve hot with any flavoured coconut chutney!

    வீட்டில் எப்பாவது மதியம் சமைத்த காளிப்ளவர் இருந்தால் இரவில் இப்படி தோசை அல்லது சப்பாத்தி உடன் சாப்பிடுவோம்..

    இப்பொழுது தான் தெரியுது காளிப்ளவர் மசால் தோசை என்று ஹேட்டலில் மெனு இருக்கின்றது என்று...சூப்பர்ப்...

  31. Reminds me of college. We used to order all the time at Annapoorna. It used to be a evening tiffin item I think and if we were not there at a certain time it will be gone.

  32. This looks sooooo.... good!!!! Im craving for one right now :))

    Btw for your shahi paneer recipe u fried the tomato paste till nice & thick..Whwenevr we try to wait for too long when frying a paste..it splatters all over..then we have to cover with a lid but cant stir it as its all jumping inside the pan..And then finally we end up adding the next ingredient earlier than req?? How did you go about it???

  35. Makes me hungry, seriously am craving for this masala dosas..

    ReplyDelete
  36. prats, you are right. But when we fry the tomatoes and onions before grinding, it wont splatter much as when we do it raw. But still it splatters a lot. I do cover and cook until the paste it thick enough to not get splattered :) After adding the masala powders esp dhaniya powder,it thickens faster...
