Ghattada Rotti

Ingredients:
1 cup White Rice
3/4 cup Boiled Rice /Brown Rice / Kucchulakki
1 medium sized Onion
Grape sized Tamarind
Grape sized Ginger
1/2 tsp Coriander seeds
10 - 12 Curry leaves
3 - 4 Red Chillies
Pinch of Asafetida powder
2 - 3 tsp grated Coconut
Salt to taste
Oil/Ghee

Recipe:
Soak white rice and boiled rice together in water for about 6-7 hrs. Wash soaked rice 2-3 times and keep it aside.
Chop 1/2 onion into small pieces as shown in the picture below. Remaining half into medium sized pieces to add it while grinding the batter.

Grind soaked rice along with red chillies, salt, curry leaves, coriander seeds, asafetida powder and tamarind to smooth paste by adding sufficient amount of water. Add remaining 1/2 onion, ginger and grind them together for about 2 mins. (Consistency of the batter should be like that of milkshake.) Add finely chopped onion and mix well.

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. It also goes well with curd and chutney powder. The ingredients mentioned above will serve 10-12 Ghattada Rottis.
