Lockdown and quarantine period is a time when you have access to limited products, not many grocery products at home, no house helps to share the kitchen work load and when the complete family is at home, the demands and expectations are unending when it comes to food.
So, below is a recipe of whole wheat dosa or chilla, instantly made without requiring many prior preparations.
Whole wheat flour - 2 cups
Finely chopped onion - 1/3 cups
Green chillies finely chopped - 4
Coriander leaves - few sprigs (optional)
Salt - as per taste
Oil or ghee - for cooking
In a pan, add the whole wheat flour, salt and mix well. Gradually add water and form a thick batter with a dosa consistency.
To this, add the chopped onion, green chillies, coriander leaves, mix well and adjust the consistency with water and let it sit aside for 10 minutes.
Now, take a dosa pan, ones hot, grease very little oil and pour a ladle full of batter on this. Spread slightly to form an even base, drizzle some oil, cover and let it cook in steam.
Ones the base is turned brown, flip the chilla and and cook until it is well done.
Repeat the same process with the rest of the batter.
To add more flavours to this while serving it to your kids, you can add some greater paneer or cheese on top while cooking it.
You can serve these dosa/chilla with coconut chutney, tomato chutney, ghee or just by itself.
