I came to know that this variety of dosa can be made through one of my room mates Usharani, during my hostel days.I tasted the dosa and it was very similar to the dosa my mom makes just by grinding rice and fermenting it for the next day. And this dosa need not be fermented as tomato is there for tanginess! We all love this,family favourite . Sorry I could not click stepwise this time .

This sambar is a perfect side dish for Idli,pongal and dosa too..I make this very often and now hooked to this recipe,as my kid always wants sambar for idly/dosa.. I like it best with pongal.
Serve with idly/dosa or pongal or you can have it with mini idlies as I did that day for dinner ! Top with sesame oil or ghee if desired..

I have endless towards tangy items~puliyogare,puli sadam,puli kuzhambu,lemon oats,lemony chutney… . And this one adds on the list above,can be made with less effort,no cutting process…Even bachelors can adopt the recipe and try.
Mustard - 3/4 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Channa dal - 1 tsp
Red chillies/green chillies - 2-3 nos
Curry leaves - A sprig
asafoetida - 1/8 tsp
- Wash the aval and soak in warm water(gets ready quickly) or ordinary water. The water level should be just enough to immerse,so don’t add more than that.Mix salt,lemon juice,little turmeric and asafoetida in this water itself and mix it,so that the aval absorbs everything.
- After 10-15 mins,the aval should have absorbed all the water.
- Now heat a pan with oil and temper with the tempering items given in the table ‘To Temper’, in order.
- Add the aval and give it a stir to mix well.
- Just reduce the flame to low and cook covered for 6-8 mins.
- If you are concerned about the vitamins in the lemon,add lemon juice after the poha gets cooked.before removing from fire)
Add the sesame oil at end and enjoy your lemon aval!

I tried this paratha for first time when my kid got cabbage as ‘Vegetable of the week’ in his school. This was perfect for his lunch box and he loved it a lot and brought back empty lunch box back home! I too loved the taste very much and this is sure going to be a regular item at home,as it makes me and my kiddo consume some vegetable! There are two versions of cabbage paratha,one is this version and the other is stuffed cabbage paratha,but I love this version as this is easy and mess free job at the early morning hurry buries… Do try this yourself,if not so far and you too will agree with me..
