Bendekayi(Okra) Dose

Ingredients:
4 - 5 cups chopped Okra / Ladies Finger / Bendekayi
4 cups White Rice
1/2 cup grated Coconut
4 - 5 Green Chillies
Small piece of Ginger (Optional)
3 - 4 strands of Curry leaves (Optional)
1.5 cups of fresh Buttermilk
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.
Chop the okra into medium sized pieces as shown in the picture. Put chopped okra, green chillies, grated coconut, curry leaves, ginger in a mixer and crush.

Grind soaked rice into medium smooth paste by adding required amount of water. Add crushed okra and grind them together into smooth paste. Add salt, buttermilk, water(if required) and mix well. (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 around 25 Dosas.
