Waffle mixed dal dosa (adai)


I wanted to create a recipe using the regular dosa batter but present it in a unique way. The options seemed to be – variety of stuffed dosa, dosa with chutney smeared inside, variant of ponganalu etc. Then it occurred to me, what if I use grill .. or even better – a waffle maker! Using dosa batter in waffle maker sounded like a cool idea. I didn’t have to change anything in the batter to use it with the waffle maker. It doesn’t need additional oil compared to the regular recipe. You can even try using a grill if you have one. You could also add additional ingredients to create variants like ‘onion dosa waffle’ etc.

Enjoy !

Procedure

Soak chana dal, moong dal, black eye beans, urad dal and brown rice in water for six hours. Now grind them by adding ginger in a grinder until batter is smooth.(Add little water at a time while grinding, batter should not be too loose). Transfer in to a bowl, add salt, jeera seeds and coriander. Mix well.

I used this (http://www.cuisinart.com/products/waffle_makers/wmr-ca.html) waffle maker. Preheat the waffle maker. Lightly brush the top and bottom of waffle grid with oil. Pour half cup of batter in middle and spread evenly.
