Aloo Dose / Potato Dosa

Ingredients:
1 cup White Rice
1 medium sized Potato / Aloo
3-4 Red Chillies
Salt to taste
Pinch of Asafotida powder
8-10 Curry leaves
Oil/Ghee

Recipe:
Soak white rice in water for about 6-7 hrs. Wash soaked rice 2-3 times and keep it aside.
Cook the potato in a pressure cooker by adding sufficient amount of water(3-4 whistles). Once the pressure goes off, remove the outer cover of potato and mash it.
Grind soaked rice along with mashed potatoes, red chillies, salt, curry leaves and pinch of asafotida powder into smooth paste by adding sufficient amount of water.(Consistency of the batter should be like that of milkshake.)

Heat the Tava(Iron Tava preferred). Pour a spoonful of batter at the centre, spread it with the back of the spoon to a thin round. Add 1 tsp of oil/ghee on top of dosa, cover it in a lid and cook it for a minute in medium flame. Cook other side of the dosa as well for about 1 min.

Serve hot with any chutney or sambar. The ingredients mentioned above will serve 6-7 Potato Dosas.

Looks great. Easy to prepare. Looks like we can prepare this dosa immediately after grinding.Is it so?

Aloo dose tastes very nice.Is it possible to prepare dose out of "Jeegujje"?

Ruchi Ruchi Adige said...

@Oppanna,
Yes, we can prepare dosa from Jeegujje(Bread Fruit). The recipe is similar to Badanekayi(Brinjal/Eggplant) Dose. Substitute Bread Fruit in place of Eggplant. Here is the link for: Badanekayi Dose

I like all your recipes.. Its awesome mainly for quick breakfast Ideas.
But its not SMASH, its MASH. You only Mash the potatoes and a car can probably Smash into something :)
