How to make Southern/ Dosa Cigars

  1. For Dosa:
  2. Soak dal & rice overnight
  3. In the morning grind them into a fine paste, add some salt and let it ferment.
  4. Make small crispy crepes and keep it aside.
  5. For Sambhar Dip:
  6. Wash the soaked Dal and bring it to boil.
  7. In the meantime heat some oil in a karai and add mustard seed and curry Patta and when it start to flutter, add onion, tomato and Sambhar masala.
  8. We can add veggies also but since I had to serve Sambhar in shot glasses I avoided the veggies.
  9. Mix the boiled dal thoroughly and add it to the prepared mix.
  10. Bring it to boil in high flame for 5- 10 minutes. Add tamarind and keep aside.
  11. You can grind it into smooth paste to make it a typical Dip but the crunchiness in veggies also give the dip a different texture.
  12. The dip should be a bit thick not like regular Sambhar.
  13. For assembling:
  14. Make a very thin Dosa and layer it with a thin layer of Dosa masala, some coconut chutney and roll it like a very sleek cigar.
  15. Serve hot with the Dip.

My Tip:

We can make instant rawa Dosa also.
