Egg Dosa

Evening times are turning out to be quite trying for me as my toddler is getting increasingly fussy about his afternoon snacks. If it is too light, he gets cranky after 1-2 hours. And he is not too fond of heavy stuff like paratha, halwa or puri either. So, I have to come up new ideas every two days. Hence, I introduced the egg dosa on his menu. I usually roll it up like a chicken roll and add loads of ketchup to it. He liked it very much and keeps asking for it again and again.

Read on for the recipe -

Preparation Time - 10 mins

Ingredients -

  • 2 cups dosa batter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 medium sized onion (finely chopped)
  • 1-2 green chili ( finely chopped, omit for kids)
  • 1/4 tsp red chili powder/karam (omit for kids)
  • chopped cilantro
  • tomato ketchup 
  • 4 tsp oil
  • salt to taste

Preparation - Break the eggs into a bowl and add 1-2 pinch of salt. Whisk it gently.

Add salt to batter and adjust the consistency if required.

Cooking - Heat a flat tawa or dosa tawa on medium flame. 

Pour 1 cup batter and spread it outwards in a circular motion. After a minute, spread half of the egg all over the dosa. Reduce flame and cook till the egg is almost cooked.

Sprinkle onions, green chilis, red chili powder, cilantro and ketchup over the dosa. 

Fold it or roll it up and remove from the tawa.

Serve hot !!

Cheese Schezwan Masala Dosa

On a recent evening out ( quite rare with a kid hanging around ), I happened to sample some mind blowing dosa varieties in Bengaluru. Made me wonder why i hadn't tried out this South indian-Chinese fusion earlier.
Though I can never ever get tried of this crispy golden delicacy, some variety is always welcome.

The tiny roadside stall goes by the name of '99 Dosas' and has a quite a few branches around the city I am told. And with a big crowd surrounding this place, it seems to be very popular. Sometimes it takes upto 30-40 minutes to get your order but the wait is quite worth it. I particularly liked the 'Cheese Schezwan' one. Read on for the recipe:

Preparation Time - 15 mins

Ingredients - 1 cup of dosa batter, 1 boiled potato, 1 small onion (finely chopped), 2 tbsp julienned carrot, 1 tbsp spring onions, 1/4 cup fresh peas, a pinch of turmeric, salt to taste, 2 tsp schezwan sauce, 1/2 tsp GG paste, 4-5 tbsp grated processed cheese, 4-5 tsp oil, 2 tsp butter (optional).

Cooking - Heat 2 tsp oil in a wok. Add the onions and fry till light brown. Add GG paste and fry for 2 mins.

Add the mashed potato along with salt. Fry for 2-3 mins. Remove from wok and allow to cool a bit.

Heat a dosa tawa. Season with just a bit of oil.

Pour 1/2 cup batter and spread with a circular motion into a thin dosa.

Drizzle a little oil on sides. Put 1 tsp butter in the center and spread it. Put some schezwan sauce on top and spread it all over the dosa.

Add half of the potato mixture. Top with the chopped carrots, spring onions and peas.

Sprinkle the grated cheese. Mix it a bit with the other ingredients.

Fold over and serve hot with chutney.

Note: I have used more of the potato mixture as compared to veggies. One can adjust the proportion as per one's liking.
