Dosa is a typical South Indian
breakfast rich in carbohydrates and proteins. Regular dose batter
is made from rice and split, skinned urad bean blended with water
and left to ferment overnight.
The batter is then ladled in small
amounts onto a hot greased tawa and is spread out into a thin
circle and fried with oil or ghee until golden brown. The dosa may
then be folded in half and served, or it may be flipped to cook on
the other side and then served.
Dosas can be stuffed with vegetables, meats and sauces to create
different tastes. Dosa is served with accompaniments such as
chutney, sambar, milagai podi, Muddha Pappu(dal) with large amount
of Ghee or a pickle.
There are a number of dosa variations like Egg Dosa, Chilli Dosa,
Onion Dosa, Ghee dosa, Butter Dosa, Family Roast, Paper Dosa,
Chow-Chow Dosa, Masala dosa and much more.
