To begin making the Tomato Dosa, first rinse raw rice, methi seeds and urad dal separately. Then soak them separately in enough water for just 3 to 4 hours, or overnight so it is ready for your breakfast.
After 3-4 hours or the next morning, grind rice, methi seeds and urad dal together with a little water until it forms a smooth batter without grains.
Add roughly chopped tomatoes to the batter and grind for few more minutes till all tomatoes are ground well and the batter is infused with the tomato puree.
Pour the batter into a bowl. Add salt to taste and mix well. Add cooking soda and mix again. Leave it for 10 minutes. You Instant Tomato Dosa batter is now ready.
To make dosas, place a skillet or tawa on the heat. When it is adequately warm, pour a ladle full of batter and spread it into concentric circles working your way outwards, till you have a dosa of your desired size and thickness.
Drizzle a few drops of oil or ghee on the sides. Cover the dosa and allow it to cook.
Once the sides of the dosa starts to brown and release from the pan, gently lift the dosa from skillet and flip to cook on the other side.
Serve dosa immediately with Red Chilli Coconut Chutney or Peanut Chutney for a delicious wholesome breakfast, or pack it in your own lunch box or kid’s snack box.
