It takes me a year to find time to draft a post :) No, I am definitely not at all busy. Just that priorities change and then passion becomes liability.
This blog has helped many nurture their cooking, most of all it has helped me remember recipes of the new dishes that I put together.
I have been baking a lot of late, However my heart still goes to South Indian food. This is comfort food for me.
This recipe is quick to put together can be used in more than one way. Feel free to add or remove vegetables. Just that i had quite a few bell peppers to finish up.
Wheat Flour - 2 Cups
Maida - 1 Cup
Rice Flour - 3 Tsp
Baking Powder - 1 Tsp
Salt - As required
Seive all of the above and set aside.
Onion - 3 Medium (Finely Chopped)
Bell Pepper (Yellow, Red, Green) - 1 Each (Finely Chopped)
Cumin Seeds - 1 Tsp
Chilli Flakes - 1 Tsp
Pepper Powder - 1 Tsp
Milk - Half cup
Roasted Peanuts - 2 tsp (Optional)
Oil - As required
Ghee - As required
To the sieved flour mixture add required water to make it into a thick creamy batter.
Add onion, bell peppers, cumin seeds, chilli flakes, pepper powder, peanuts and mix the batter until you a smooth and colourful batter.
Add milk and mix it into the batter well.
Heat a tava, spread the batter evenly, add drops of oil or ghee (I added both :) ).
Cook on both sides until it turns golden brown. Serve hot with Chutney Powder.
I turned some of the batter into tasty Kuli paniyaram / Padu. I prefer Padu's over dosa !!!
Add ghee while cooking these, They give a nice flavour and aroma.
The Rice flour, gives a nice crunch, these are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Cooking time : 30 min (Including the dosa / padu making time)
Serves : 4
