Maida Dosa

Maida /All purpose flour dosa is a breakfast dish. When you are in a hurry or hungry you can think of preparing this dosa.
Normally we will have maida at home. So it is very easy to prepare. It does not have to ferment either. Just mix maida and milk. This combination of milk and maida turns out to be aromatic yummy dosa. We all know Maida/ All purpose flour is not that good for our body. But we are using milk in it. So it helps to digest the food easily. As I said dosa turns very soft. You must have heard of pan cake. Pan cake is nothing but mixture of milk, maida and eggs. Instead of eggs I have added rice flour which helps to bond the milk and maida and gives crispy to dosa.
I have used maida, milk and little amount of rice flour which gives crisp to dosa. It is very easy, quick and simple.
Now lets see the recipe.:

Ingredients :

Maida / All purpose flour : 2 Cups
Boiled  and cooled Milk : 1 Cup
Rice flour : 2 Tablespoons
Salt : To taste.
Oil : 2 Tablespoons
Ghee : 2 Tablespoons
Required water : 11/2 to 2 cups

Method :

1. Take a big bowl. Add milk and Maida to the bowl. Add salt.
2. Add 2 tablespoons of rice flour and mix it well. Let maida mixes well.
3. Let the dough be like dosa dough. ( You can add little more water).
4. Give a churn in the liquidizer. Remove from the mixi jar and let it set for 10 minutes.
5. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Sprinkle little oil on the tava.
6. Take a ladle full of dough and spread it in a circle shape.
7. Add a spoon of oil on the top and cover the lid and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on medium flame.
8. Turn the dosa  other side and cook for 1 minute.
9. Maida dosa is ready to serve. Serve with the side dish you have prepared.
10. You can also spread honey on the top and roll the dosa and serve.

Note : 

The batter should be mixed well to get the good dosa. You can add jaggery and coconut mixture on the top and roll the dosa to give a Indian pan cake touch. Adding honey on the top of dosa is also optional. You can grate carrots, ginger and top up the dosa. (Spicy dosa ). Add sufficient water. The consistency should be little more watery than the normal dosa. Adding little cooking soda is optional. (I have not added. adding an egg is also optional. ( I have not added)
