Road to Happiness !
Was feeling bored saturday evening. Did not feel like going out to eat. . the queen and princess bee's werent busy either. So decided to go back to my nostalgic days.
Decided to make the sundar special Rava Dosai at home..
Came out nice and crispy.. just like paper..
For those who might by interested in the recipe :
Oil in a vessel
add cumin, mustard seeds, red chili pieces (3 long dry red chillies in small pieces)
once the mustard starts to splatter, add asafoedita (hing) and curry leaves
Turn off the stove and immediately add rava (1 cup) mix in vessel
add rice flour (1 cup) and continue mixing (the whole thing is still dry at this stage)
Add a quarter glass of buttermilk to this and mix.
Then add two spoons of coke (diet coke) preferably the part with the fizz. (the credit for this idea goes to my buddy Durgaprasad - he came up with this concept of adding coke to get accelerated yeast in Charlottsville, Virginia in 1994. Unfortunately for him and fortunately for us, he did not patent this scheme! I used to add Fleishmans yeast in hot water, to do this part)
Add two glasses of water, required salt and mix thoroughly.
Wait for 15 minutes, heat the tava and start making the dosa..
Of course, you will have to do your own optimization with the salt and chili to get it just right for your taste.
Mine got a yummy from the little one.
I am back, baby !! (in the kitchen , that is).
