Bread Dosa is a good way to finish up slices of bread that have been sitting around for a while. It is quick and easy to make and tastes delicious too.
Here's how I make it:
4 Bread slices - I use whole wheat or multigrain bread (usually the slices at the ends of the loaf)
1/2 cup fine rava (semolina)
1 tbsp rice flour
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1 green chilli
few curry leaves
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
1 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
Sprinkle 1 tbsp water or buttermilk on each slice of bread and keep for 5 mins. Then mix the soaked bread with all the other ingredients from rava to curry leaves above. Add 1/2 cup water and grind in a blender to get the bread dosa batter. Consistency should be like regular dosa batter, so add little more water if needed. Then add the salt, cumin seeds, finely chopped onions and cilantro.
To make the dosa/pancake, heat a non-stick tawa on medium heat and pour a ladleful in the center. Quickly spread it into a circular shape. Dot the edges with little ghee and let it cook for 2-3 mins. Flip over and cook the other side, till both sides are golden brown.
Serve hot with ketchup or chutney.
This make about 4 dosas. These dosas are soft/fluffy inside and crispy outside.
