Boiled Rice - Raw Rice Dosa

Boiled rice and Raw rice Quick dosa is good to have for breakfast/snack. One more traditional dish from Udupi and Dakshina Kannada.

The rain fall is more in Karavali and the land is very good for growing paddy/rice in these areas. I have seen my aunt struggle to get workers to work in fields. It was really a struggle that she won't get people for working on time. Though there used be many workers they would flee to work in other fields. She has to plead them for coming to work in our field. Some time the rain used to play a big role. People there depend upon the rain for water supply to the field during the rainy season. Less rain means the plants dry and the more rain spoils and rotten the plants. The struggle behind the farmer is so much, at the end some or other things happen and the farmer is at the great loss.
Since my aunt used to grow paddy, we used to have home grown rice to have our food. Most of the dishes are prepared using rice. This is one of the famous and traditional dish that I learnt from my aunt.
Coming back to recipe I have used boiled rice, raw rice and little grated coconut. It makes the dosa tasty. No urid dal is used here and the batter need not to be ferment.
Let us see the recipe now :

Ingredients : 

Boiled Rice : 2 Cups
Dosa Rice /Raw Rice : 1 Cup
Coconut : 1 Cup
Salt : As required
Oil : 4 to 5 Tablespoons
Water : As required
Oil : 3 to 4 Tablespoons ( To Prepare dosa).

Method :

1. Wash and soak boiled and raw rice together for over night or 5 to 6 hours.
2. Grate coconut and grind rice with coconut till it turns very fine paste.

3. Remove from the mixi jar and put it in a big bowl. Add required salt.
4. Add water and make the batter consistency as little thicker than normal dosa batter.

5. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Sprinkle some oil on the top of tava.
6. Spread the oil around the tava. Take a ladle of the dosa batter and pour it slowly like round shape. ( ( Use your fingers to spread dosa on the tava. It turns thin and nice). Let the flame be low while spreading batter on the tava.
