Thattil Kutty Dosa & Garlic Chutney

Thattil Kutti Dosa & Garlic chutney (Malayalam movie Salt N' Pepper fame)Thattil Kutti Dosa featured here was one of the characters in this Malayalam hit movie. Kuttidosa made on thattu (wide hot plate) is popular all over Kerala, but I'm not sure who gave this exact name. Pai Brothers , Kochi is famous for these dosas also.

For Dosa Batter:

1 cup (100 g) + 1 tablespoon urad dal
1 1/2 cups (150 g) idli rice (puzhukkalari or special rice for the preparation of idli available at leading stores)
1/2 cup (50 g) raw rice (pachari)
1 tablespoon cooked rice (leftover cooked rice, and also cooled)
Salt to taste ( approximately 1 teaspoon )
Ghee / oil for frying
Water for grinding

For Dosa Batter:

Wash and soak urad dal and rice separately for 6 - 7 hours.

Grind the urad dal and cooked rice to a very fine paste. Add little water while grinding. Remove and keep aside in a big vessel.

Then grind rice with little water. Remove and mix with dal paste and add salt to taste. Batter should be of dropping consistency. Cover and keep aside for 4 -5 hours.

Heat dosa pan. Pour 1/2 ladleful batter and make kutty / small dosas depending upon the diameter of the dosa pan ( 3- 5 kutty dosas at a time). Sprinkle ghee / oil on top the dosas. Cook for 2 minutes on a medium heat. Turn other side and cook till golden color. Serve with garlic chutney / sambar ...
