I don’t know if anybody has noticed but my last 2 posts were food that were orange in colour…this one is the same !!! I have trouble getting N to eat his veggies, so I just incorporate them in the dish by pureeing them. This is one of his favourites…..the CARROT DOSA . I got the recipe from my sis S who has a book of like 100 dosa recipes. Its simple to make , has a great orange colour and tastes great with hints of coconut that compliment the heat of the chillies and the natural sweetness of the carrots.
2 cup Raw Rice
- 2 cup Boiled Ponni Rice½ cup Urd Dal
2 tsp Methi Seeds
1 ½ cups grated/ chopped Carrots
1 small onion
¼ cup shredded Coconut
4-6 dried Red Chillies
2 tbsp Cilantro, chopped
Salt to taste
Soak the rice, dal and methi seeds for 3-4 hours.
- In a food processor, blend together the coconut, carrots, onions and chillies.Grind together the soaked rice mixture. Halfway thru the grinding process, add the coconut-carrot mixture and salt . Grind till you get a smooth pour able batter.
Add the cilantro and let the batter rest for 3-4 hours before you use it.
If you do not feel like grinding the onions along with the other veggies, use chopped onions and add them along with the cilantro. I grind mine as N will not eat veggies that he can see ….its ok if he can’t see them!! I also think a good combo would be carrot and mint leaves. Feel free to add other flavours like ginger. I like this combo and it has worked for me in the past . The minute they stop eating this, I am reworking it until I find the tastes they will eat.
