Masti dosa (Mushti polo)

This is again a recipe from Old Kannada weekly (“Tharanga“). It has some 50+ dosa recipes. I love these recipes because these all dosas are very simple and always turn out well.

May be it is called “Masti(fun) dosa” because it is lot of fun to make these dosas(??). The main ingredient of this are rice(any normal rice) and flattened rice(poha), so these can be made paper thin. You can take them out from tava very easily. These are fried from only one side. In all, making of the dosa as well as eating them is lot of fun :D.

After writing this post, from the comments from my readers, I came to know it is also called Mushti dosa in some places. Vee gave me a very good explanation in the comment. Mushti meaning a handful in Konkani.

Another version of Mushti dosa can be seen at Ashwini’s blog.

2 cups rice
1 cup poha(avalakki)
2 tbl spn urad daal
1/2 tea spn methi(fenugreek) seeds
1/2 cup coconut(fresh or frozen)

Soak rice and daals in water for around 2-3hrs. Grind it with coconut. Add soaked poha and grind to a very smooth paste. Mix salt and keep it overnight for fermentation.
Next day, make dosas. Fry these dosas from only one side.
Serve hot with any chutney.
