Thuppa polo~Maida-Urad dal Dosa

Dosa's are comfort food,if I may say so!There are so many varieties of dosa and you can never have them enough.Even in restaurants,you become so confused to order which particular dosa for that day!You want dosa?which one..butter dosa,ghee dosa,masala dosa..?oh,you want rava dosa?rava dosa,rava masala,onion rava dosa,onion rava masala dosa..phew!So on and so forth.I am sure if you have checked out Srivalli's Dosa mela,you would be nodding your head in unison now;-).

Thuppa polo(literally translates to ghee roast)is a famous South Kanara preparation.It is a simple dosa made with maida and urad dal batter mixed together and made with pure desi ghee,hence the name.It looks like a normal dosa but in taste,is quite different.It is a very light and fluffy dosa and if you have it hot from the tava,I am sure you won't be able to stop at 3(yeah,thats the minimum number of dosas that you can eat at one go!).Even though I love it as much,I haven't made it quite often.The amount of maida scared me while I was on a diet.:-(.Now that I am off it and have plenty of maida in my kitchen(what with my baking sojourn these days!)I ventured out making this.You just cannot go wrong with this one coz its so very easy.Hubby said it tastes just like amma's(m-i-l's)..woooww...yippee!!!

Thuppa polo~Maida-Urad dal dosa Ingredients

Maida - 2 cups
Urad dal - 3/4 cup
Salt to taste
Ghee/Oil - for making dosas


Soak urad dal for about 1 hour and grind into a smooth paste.Keep refrigerated.
In a broad vessel,add the maida,salt and enough water to make a batter without forming lumps.
Keep it aside ,overnight(or for 7-9 hrs).
Next morning(or after 7-9 hrs),mix both the batters together well.
Make dosas in a hot dosa pan(you can use non-stick pans too) using ghee.
Relish with coconut chutney!!
