Quick dosa - with leftover cooked rice

I have heard that in hotels leftover cooked rice is used to make dosa batter. Don't know how far this is true. But my MIL generally adds one spoon of cooked rice while grinding dosa batter. She says this makes the dosa soft. The other day I had some cooked rice leftover. We generally use the kerala matta (red rice). So this leftover rice cannot be used for making mixed rice. I thought of making dosa batter with it. And the end result was fabulous. The dosas were so soft, we loved it.

Cooked rice - 200 grams
Curd (sour) - 50 grams
Maida flour - 50 grams
baking soda - 1/2 spoon
salt - to taste
Oil - to grease

Grind the cooked rice along with curd and salt to a smooth paste.
To this add the maida flour and little water and make it into a batter. Be careful so that there are no lumps formed.
Add the baking soda, mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes.
I used a non-stick pan to make the dosas.
Heat the dosa pan, grease with a little oil. Pour one ladle of batter and don't spread.
Cook covered on both sides.

Quick dosa is ready!!! Serve with chutney of your choice.

H enjoyed this with honey....

  5. Hi, loved this recipe. Just one query. Do I have to add the baking soda. Can I make the batter a Night earlier and then add the soda just in time to make the dosa?
