Masala Dosa/மசால் தோசை【米豆糊馅饼】

Masala Dosa (மசால் தோசை) is a very famous snack/breakfast in Southern part of India.

When I made homemade Idli/Dosa batter at home, I will use it for Idli the first two days as the batter is at its fluffiest form and is less sourish. Dosa/Tosai or Uttapam will be on the menu third day onward when the batter turned a little more sourish and less fluffy.

这款馅饼/Masala Dosa是印度南部的小食,有好几位网友写信问我会不会做,刚好前几天做了一罐的米豆蒸糕/米豆煎饼面今天就做了这款馅饼做早饭。

1 cup Homemade Dosa Batter or Shop Bought Dosa mix
A pinch of baking soda
1-2 tbsp water to adjust consistency

1 medium size Potatoes
1/2 tsp mustard seed
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1/4 tsp of Chili powder
5-6 Curry leaves
1 tbsp cooking oil
a pinch of asafetida/hing
Salt to taste (around 1/3 tsp)
1 tsp of lime/lemon juice

2 大杯 自制的米豆糊 或市售的Dosa mix (印巴超市就买得到)
小苏打 一撮
2-3 tbsp 水

1 只 土豆 
1/4 洋葱 切丝
1/2 小勺 芥末籽 (Mustard seeds)
1/2 小勺 姜黄 (Turmeric)
1/4 小勺 辣椒粉 (Chili Powder)
3-4 片 咖喱叶 (optional) 
一撮 阿魏胶 (Asafoetida/Hing)
1 大勺 油
盐 适量
1 小勺 青柠/柠檬汁

1. Boiled potatoes till it is cooked, skinned and mashed with potato masher.

2. In a small cooking pot, add one tablespoon of oil with sliced onion, curry leaves, mustard seeds, fry for about 2-3 minute. Add turmeric powder, chili powder and asafetida before turning off the stove.

Note: I do this step using microwave, just place all ingredients with oil in a microwavable bowl, microwave for 2 minutes.

3. Pour tempering over mashed potatoes, season with salt and lime juice. Mixed well.

4. Pour 2 cups of dosa batter out into a big bowl, add a pinch of baking soda and stir well using a whisk, adjust with a little water if the batter is thick, the consistency of dosa batter could be a little thinner than idli batter to allow easier spreading.

1. 把土豆煮熟,去皮用叉子压成泥。在一口可入微波炉的碗里加入洋葱丝,芥末籽 (Mustard seeds), 姜黄 (Turmeric), 辣椒粉 (Chili Powder)咖喱叶 (optional) ,一撮 阿魏胶 (Asafoetida/Hing)和油,入微波炉里转2分钟。


2. 把刚刚煸好的材料加到土豆泥里,加盐和柠檬汁调味,拌匀备用。

5. Heat up a griddle/skillet over the stove at low heat, pour 1/2 cup of batter over griddle and spread the batter using a ladle in circular motion to form a large disk. Spread a thin layer of oil over dosa. Flip the dosa when the edges shows golden brown in color, cook for 1 more minute at medium heat.

6. Flip the dosa back and add the potato fillings in the middle of dosa. Wrap the dosa around filling to serve.

Serve with Sambar and Coconut Chutney.

3. 取2 大杯的米豆糊家一撮的小苏打拌匀,可依米豆糊的浓稠度加点水拌匀。

4. 炉子上架上一个平底锅,中火加热,倒入点油之后用厨房纸擦去。转小火,在锅子中间倒入大约1/2 杯的米豆糊。用个汤勺,自面糊的中央一直旋转开去。把那个饼逐渐的扩大,这个动作要快。因为这个米豆糊熟得快,如果动作不够快,饼就会摊得很厚,也不脆。

5. 摊好饼后转中火,定型之后在饼的边上滴上几滴油,或在表面抹一层油,边上开始出现金黄色时,慢慢的从边上用铲把饼整个地翻面。把另外一面也煎一下,再反过来,在饼中间部分均匀的放上土豆馅。把两边折起,裹上馅即可。
