This month was a challenge, so many of the recipes on Priyas blog looked intriguing, and good, but I cannot get many of the ingredients here so I decided to stick with another Dosa recipe for Taste and Create this month. But a good Dosa is always well received. At least by me. And I finally found some Channa Flour, also known as Besan or Chickpea flour here. And I now keep it in my cupboard for recipes just like this one. I always have green chiles in the freezer, and onions are also a staple in my cupboard as well. The original recipe is in black with my changes and notes in blue to the side.
Here is the recipe for the Channa Dosa
Recipe: Channa Dosa
2 cups Channa flour (AKA Besan or Chickpea Flour)
1 finely chopped onion
3 finely chopped green chillies ( I used Jalapeno's cause that is what I had)
1 cup grated Parsnips
chopped coriander leaves
water ( I used just over 2 cups, this makes a thinner pancake like batter)
1/2 tsp. salt for taste
1 tsp. Oil
Chop onions and chile's, into a fine dice. Saute for about 2 minutes in 1 tsp. oil and set aside.
Mix the channa flour,salt, sauteed onions, green chilies,grated carrot (parsnip) ,coriander leaves and water...
Heat a small pan, spray well with cooking spray, then ladle out about 1/4 cup of batter.
Prepare like a dosa and serve hot with mint chutney. ( I had my Major Grey's Chutney in the cupboard so I used that as an accompaniment.
Would I make this again? I think so, it was tasty and in fact was my breakfast this morning. Not a bad breakfast if I do say so. I like spice any time of the day anyway.
