Udad Dal Dosa (South Indian Bread)
1 cup udad dal, soaked in water for 2-3 hours,
1 cup rava or suji (semolina),
2-3 green chillies,
1 tsp jeera (cumin seeds),
Salt to taste,
1/2 cup sour buttermilk,
Oil for frying.
Grind together udad dal, jeera, ginger, green chillies and little water to form a smooth batter. Then add rava to it, mix well. Add butter milk and water only enough to get a spreading consistency. Add salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda and mix well and let it ferment for around 1 hour. Later heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan and drop a spoonful of batter on it and spread in circular motion to form a thin and even dosa. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, then flip over and cook uncovered for 3-4 minutes. Serve with green chutney.
