Cilantro Dosa (Kottimeera Dosa)

Cilantro Dosa (Kottimeera Dosa)

I mostly make instant dosas that need little preparation. But that doesn’t mean I never go for traditional cooking. I do cook traditionally sometimes, but mostly the easy way! This is also an instant dosa infused with cilantro (coriander leaves) and green chilies. 

Ingredients :
  • 3 cups Rice Flour
  • 1 cup Urad Flour (Flour made out of Black Gram Dal available in Indian stores)
  • 1 bunch of Cilantro, washed
  • 5 or 6 Green Chilies, stems removed
  • Salt as required
  • Oil
  • Some Buttermilk or water to make the batter
  1. Grind together cilantro + green chilies into a fine paste by adding little water.
  2. In a big bowl mix rice flour and urad flour together. Add the ground cilantro + chili paste to the flours and mix well. Pour buttermilk or water to make thin batter. Keep the batter aside for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan and pour a ladleful of batter first around the edges of the pan into a circular shape and then fill in the circle fast.
  4. Due to the addition of buttermilk, we can’t spread the batter into a thin circle with a spatula. So we just need to pour the batter the way suggested above.
  5. Pour some oil around the dosa and let the dosa cook. When it’s cooked on one side, flip it over to cook on the other side. Then transfer the dosa to a serving plate.
  6. Repeat the same process with rest of the batter.
  7. Enjoy these yummy dosas with desired chutney. We ate ours with Onion Chutney.
