Balekai Dose

Ingredients:

1 large Raw Banana

1 cup White Rice

Salt to taste

Oil/Ghee

Recipe:

Soak rice in water for about 4-5 hrs. Wash soaked rice 2-3 times and keep it aside.

Take off only the fiber from the outer cover of raw banana as shown in the picture below.

Chop it into thin round pieces and put it in a vessel containing water.

Grind soaked rice along with sliced raw banans and water into smooth paste. Add salt and water(if required). (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(optional), cover it in a lid and cook it for a minute in medium flame. Remove the lid and roast the dosa.

Serve hot along with any chutney or sambar.The ingredients mentioned above will serve 6-8 Balekai Dosas.

Hi Krishnaveni,

Your recipes are authentic. I tried your Baalekai Dose recipe and my husband and I both simply loved it.
Never would have thought of plantain in Dosa batter.

Thanks for the simple yet wonderful recipe.

BTW, I have an aunt by the same name, we are more like cousins though!

Cheers
Radhika
