How to make sorakaya Dosa (bottle gourd) - Recipe for south indian bottle gourd dosa

Our dosa specials continues at Tanish Kitchen. Last time we saw how to make cabbage dosa..Today we will see how to make Bottle gourd dosa. It is pretty much similar, the only difference is you need to add coriander seeds for bottle gourd dosa batter preparation.

Batter Ingredients:

(1 cup = 100 grams)

1. Idly rice - 1 cup
2. Sona masoori(raw) rice - 1 cup
3. Bottle gourd  - 1 cup (chopped)
4. Red chillis - 4 nos
5. Asafodita powder - 1/4 tsp
6. Coriander seeds - 2 tsp
7. Salt as per taste


Seasoning

1. Onion (medium) - 1 chopped
2. Curry and coriander leaves - 1 handful

Method of preparation

1. Wash both rice together in the water and soak for 2 hours. 
2. Grind the rice with red chilli, asafoedita(zing), salt, coriander seeds in the grinder. Don't grind the batter too nice and soft.
3. Crush the bottle gourd with use of mixi .
4. Add crushed bottle gourd into the grinder when the rice batter is halfly grinded.
5. Grind the batter 5 more mins after adding the bottle gourd. That's it batter is ready now.
6. Now transfer the batter into big bowl or besan, add chopped onion, curry and coriander leaves. Mix it well.
7. If the batter is thick then add 1 or 2 cups water. If you like thin and crispy dosa, the batter should be watery. If you like thick dosa like aadai then one cup of water is enough.
8. Heat the dosa pan in a mediam flame and do dosa as you like. Usually this dosa take more time to cook than the ordinary dosa. Also you need to cook both sides.
