Sweet Maida dosai

I'm addicted to anything sweet. I have not come across a sweet I did not like. Anyway, I wanted to have something sweet after dinner today. I could have had a piece of cake which I made couple of days back. But then I wouldn't have anything to write in this blog and participate in Dosa Mela :). So, I made sweet maida dosai. When I told the recipe to my MIL, she told me that it resembled Surul appam. I checked it out and it is very similar. So, much for thinking that I 'invented' a recipe :) . So, anyway, here is how I made the dosai,

Sweet Maida Dosai

All Purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Rava - 1/4 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Yogurt - 1/4 cup
Baking soda - a pinch
Salt - a pinch

For stuffing
Shredded coconut - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup (or to taste)

  1. Place flour, baking soda, salt and yogurt in a bowl
  2. Whisk them together by adding water gradually to prepare the dosai mix.
  3. Set this aside and combine coconut and sugar together. Adjust the sugar to your taste. This is very sweet.

4. Heat dosa tawa and once its hot, pour a ladle of the dosai mix.

5. Immediately top the dosai with 1/4 cup of the coconut mixture

6. Cover the dosa tava and cook the dosai.

7. It will be done within a minute or so.

8. Fold the dosai in half and press hard. There is no need to flip the dosai.

This goes to Dosa Mela hosted by Srivali at Cooking 4 All Seasons .
