Ridge Gourd Dose / Heerekayi Dose

Ingredients:
1 cup White Rice
1 - 2 Ridge Gourd / Heerekayi
3 - 4 Red Chillies
2 tsp grated Coconut
8 - 10 Coriander seeds
5 - 6 Cumin seeds
Button sized Asafoetida
5 - 6 Curry Leaves
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. Grind soaked rice along with red chillies, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, grated coconut, curry leaves, salt, asafoetida and water into smooth paste. Pour this ground mixture in a vessel and add water if required. Don't make the batter too thin.

Peel the ridge gourd and chop it into thin round pieces as shown in the picture below.

Heat the Tava(Iron Tava preferred). Dip the ridge gourd pieces in the prepared rice batter and place it over the tava as shown in the picture below. 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 1-2 mins by covering the lid. Serve hot along with any chutney/ sambar. The ingredients mentioned above will serve 4-5 Ridge Gourd Dosas.

I tried it last week with Thai eggplants. It was good, but not as good as my mum makes it. Guess i need the real Matti gulla for that.

Hi Sudarshan,

You can try American Eggplants. The taste of the dosa prepared with this eggplant almost matches with Matti Gulla.

Thanks and Regards,
Krishnaveni
