Godhuma Dosa-Instant Wheat Pancake



2 cups of wheat flour (atta or chapati flour)
4-5 cups of water
1 tsp of salt
2 tsp of oil
1/4 tsp of black mustard seeds
1/2 tsp of split urad dal (ulutham paruppu or uzhunnu parippu)
2-3 dry red chillies, cut into pieces
A few curry leaves, torn into pieces
3-4 shallots (chinna vengayam or ulli), minced

Method: Mix the salt and the flour. Add water a little at a time and gently mix the batter until the consistency is thin and pourable. The consistency of wheat dosa batter should be much thinner than regular dosa batter. The wheat flour will tend to form lumps so be patient and keep mixing until you get a smooth batter. Heat the oil and add the mustard seeds. When they pop, add the urad dal and fry until it turns golden brown. Then add the red chillies and curry leaves and remove from fire. Dunk this into the wheat dosa batter and then add the minced shallots. Mix well. Heat your dosa tawa and using a large rounded ladle, start pouring the batter from the outside and keep pouring batter into a circle until it’s filled. Don’t worry if there are some holes in the dosa, that will crisp up nicely and add to the taste. Keeping flame on medium-low, cook the dosa until the edges start to rise a bit. Pour a few drops of gingelly oil (nallennai) over the dosa and gently flip it over. The other side should be golden brown.
