Serves 24 to 40.

For the dosas
2 teacups par-boiled rice
1/2 teacup urad dal
1/2 teacup toovar (arhar) dal
1/2 teaspoon fenugreek (methi) seeds
10 grams fresh yeast or 5 grams dry yeast
salt to taste
For the cooking
oil or butter
For the potato bhaji
4 large potatoes, boiled and cut into big pieces
1 teaspoon urad dal
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
5 curry leaves
3 to 4 green chillies
1/4 teaspoon asafoetida
2 onions, coarsely chopped
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
2 tablespoons oil
salt to taste
Spreading for each dosa
2 teaspoons coconut chutney
2 teaspoons chopped tomatoes
2 teaspoons chopped capsicums
1 tablespoon potato bhaji
For serving
coconut chutney
1. For the dosas, soak the rice, urad dal, toovar dal and fenugreek seeds for at least for at least 4 to 5 hours.
2. Grind the soaked dal mixture in a mixture with enough water. Add salt.
3. Mix the yeast in a little warm water and add to the batter. Mix well. Wait for 45 minutes and again mix well.
4. For the potato bhaji, heat the oil, add the urad dal and mustard seeds and fry for 1/2 minute.
5. Add the curry leaves, green chillies and asafoetida and fry for a few seconds.
6. Add the onions and turmeric powder and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
7. Add the potatoes, chilli powder and salt. Cool the mixture.
8. To proceed, grease a non-stick tawa (griddle) very lightly using cotton wool. Spread a little batter at a time on the tawa and cook individual dosas using a little butter.
9. Spread a little chutney, tomatoes and capsicums. Then spread the potato bhaji in the centre of the dosa.
10. Fold the stuffed dosa like an envelop. Serve hot with extra coconut chutney.
Goodness Guide :
Par-boiled rice is steamed before husking resulting in the nutrients going deep into the grain.
The nutrients thus remain intact and don’t get ground away while polishing.
Yeast is rich in most B-Group Vitamins.
