Weekend Breakfast Trio Dosa – Rawa Maida Urad Dal Dosa with Ginger Tea

Weekend Breakfast Trio Dosa – Rawa Maida Urad Dal Dosa with Ginger Tea, dosa recipes
I love making varieties of dosa, the process starts with the slow fermentation, circular design of batter and after this comes the addition of spices and flavors and familiar comfort of warm tea. Its flavors are inspired by Southern part of India and this one is pronounced as Rava Maida Urad Dal Dosa, thanks to my friend Soumini who is always my supporter, taught me this delicious recipe in the flawless version possible. She and her mother have played a remarkable role in my life from sharing wonderful advices to helping me in perfecting the south Indian dishes away from India. Their roots belong to Udupi city so the recipe always comes out in perfection. I have a strong affection for South Indian food and we are more than happy to indulge our girly conversations over excellent food.

My weekend breakfasts satisfy all my Indian food cravings, with the right balance of greasiness and spiciness, big plates for some more dosas and relaxing mornings. Making of coconut chutney was not needed in this particular dish as everything was added into the batter. The spice in these dosa were camouflaged - the combination of advices from her led to less difficult affair. Hashim rejoice the chance to eat, and eat really well at breakfast. I made the dosa from the memory of its taste and I am including Soumini’s exact pass down recipe which is quite close to how I made it. You should definitely give a try by adding ginger tea as it gives an extra kick to it.
