Let us see the recipe now:
No Onion or No Garlic recipe...

Ingredients :

Carrot Chutney : 1 Small Bowl ( 3 to 4 Tablespoons)
Millet/Jola/sorgham/Jowar Flour : 2 Cups
Rava/Semolina : 1/2 Cup
Coriander leaves : 2 to 3 Tablespoons
Salt : As required
Water : 2 to 3 Cups or as required
Cooking Oil : 2 to 3 Tablespoons

Method :

1. Wash and cut coriander leaves and keep it aside.
2. Put carrot chutney in a big bowl. Add little water and make it more liquid.
3. Add millet/jowar/sorghum flour and mix it a little.

4. Add 1/2 cup of rava and mix it nicely. Add cut coriander leaves.

5. Add little salt and required water. ( 2 to 3 Cups of water ).
6. Let the dough be like rava dosa consistency.

7. Keep tava/pan on the fire and heat. Add a teaspoon of oil. Spread it around the pan. (Rava dosa type).
8. Let the flame be medium. Take a  ladle full  of the dough and just slowly spread it on the tava.

9. Pour the dough  like rava dosa.
If you can not pour the dough evenly do this : Hold the tava handle and turn it slowly. So the dough spreads it slowly to all the side. Keep back the tava/pan on the fire. Put 1/2 teaspoon of oil on the top and around the dosa. Cover and cook.

10. Let it cook on low and medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes. At the beginning it should be low.Then cook on medium heat for a minute. Do not turn the high flame. It might get burnt.

11. Serve hot and spicy dosa with jaggery/honey/or the side dish you have prepared.
12. We had it with organic Joni Bella which I got from Shobha Somayaji from Sagar.

Time : 15 Minutes. (If the chutney is already done Or another 10 minutes for preparing chutney).

Note :

Chutney contain coconut, green chilly, coconut, ingh/asafoetida in it. Do not use stale chutney. It might affect your health. I have used the chutney done in the afternoon. We had this dosa for dinner.
Jola/Jowar/Sorghum flour adds to the crispness in dosa. Rava helps to hold the dough nicely. You can also use chiroti rava instead of medium size rava. Adding more chilly is optional. I wanted the dosa to be mild. Use of coconut helps to add aroma to dosa.

Preparation of Carrot chutney:

Put a teaspoon of coconut oil to the pan and heat. Add ingh, curry leaves and washed and cut carrots. Fry nicely for 2 to 3 minutes and then grind it with a cup of coconut, tamarind and salt. ( Use only required water to grind. Remove the chutney from the mixi jar and serve. (It good to have with plain rice with ghee, dosa, chapati etc.

Ridge Gourd - Wheat flour Spicy Dosa.

Ridge Gourd/ Heera Kai ( In Kannada language) is one of the traditional dosa from South Canara. Usually it is prepared using raw rice, coconut and some spices.
Ridge gourd is cleaned and outer layer is removed and then cut into circled shape. These pieces are dipped in spicy rice flour content and then arranged in circle shape on the hot tava. Both sides should be cooked well on medium and low flame. (The vegetable should be cooked well and it should be soft). This is the way we prepare Ridge gourd dosa.
Here is a twist. I wanted to give a healthy turn and used wheat flour instead of rice. I also have used littel rava/semolina for binding the flour well. Used some rasam powder and jaggery. The dosa was so yummy.
It is easy and quick.  Hot Spicy Ridge gourd dosas are best to eat.
 You can prepare them for breakfast or snack or for dinner.
Lets see the recipe Now:
Things Needed :
Ridge Gourd : 2 to 3.
Wheat flour : 2 cups.
Rava ( Samolina or Sooji) : 2 Table spoons.
Coconut : 2 Table spoons.
Rasam powder : 3 to 4 Tea spoons.
Jaggery : 2 to 3 Table spoons.
Salt : Required.
Ingh : A little
Turmeric Powder : a pinch.
Tamarind pulp : 1 Table spoon.
Water : Required.
Oil : 1/2 cup.
Method :
1.  Wash and remove the edges from  Ridge gourd and remove the skin properly  from Ridge gourd and slice them thin and keep it  aside. Soak tamarind and squeeze out the pulp.
2  Mix Wheat flour, rava, tamarind pulp, salt, rasam powder, turmeric powder and grated coconut and jaggery  together. Add required water and prepare dosa dough. It should be thicker than dosa dough.
3.  Add required water and make dough (Little thicker than  Dosa consistency).
4.  Now keep a pan on the fire . Heat and spread a spoon of  oil.
5.  Dip each slice of  ridge gourd piece into wheat flour mixture and arrange it on the tava in circle shape.

 6. Spread little oil on the top and cook. (Cover dosa so that it cooks faster).
7. Turn the other side and cook for a minute.

8.Serve hot and spicy Ridge gourd dosa when it is hot.
9. Repeat the same with remaining dough and ridge gourd pieces.
   Add fresh butter on the top of ridge gourd dosa and serve.
Note :
Slice Ridge gourd in to thin pieces so that it cooks soon. You can add less or more jaggery as you wish. Cooking on the medium and low flame will give a good result. You can use ready M.T.R. rasam powder instead of home made Rasam powder. You can grind coconut, rasam powder, tamarind with little water. Mix wheat flour to this spicy coconut mixture and prepare dough.
Time : 40 Minutes. (The whole process).
Serves : 3 to 4
