Who does not like Mysore Masala Dosa!
The batter recipe:
I must thank Lakshmi for this fantastic recipe (http://www.tasteofmysore.com/search?q=Mysore+masala+dosa). It really works :)
2 cups boiled rice
3/4 cup urad dal
1/2 cup sago/ javvarsi
2 tbsp channa dal
1 tsp methi seeds
Soak rice separately. Soak the other ingredients in another container. Let them soak for 4-5 hours. Grind urad dal to a smooth batter first. Then grind the other ingredients. Mix the two batters, mix salt and allow it to ferment for 24 hrs or till the volume of the batter doubles and you can smell the sourness of the batter.
Take a ladleful of batter and pour on a hot griddle. Swiftly spread it in a circular motion. Add oil and roast till golden brown. Flip it and continue to roast with another tsp oil till golden. Flip it again, spread a tbsp of chutney and 2 tbsp of potato masala. Fold dosa and serve hot!
Watch the process of making this dosa in the video below:

Red hot chutney recipe:
For my sister's red chutney recipe, refer http://authentic-food-treasures.blogspot.com/2009/03/red-hot-chutney-red-khara-chutney.html
Masala / Palya recipe:
Boil 2 potatoes. Mash them lightly and keep aside. Add 3 tsp oil in a kadai, add 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp channa dal, 1/2 tsp urad dal. When golden, add 1 chopped onion and saute till transparent. Add 2 tbsp peas and 1/2 chopped carrot. Sprinkle some water and cook well. Add potatoes and mix well. Add salt, turmeric, chilli powder and simmer till done.
Chilli powder can be substituted with green chillies (add along with onions)
The above batter works perfectly with set dosa. Pour the batter on the griddle like shown in the picture. Serve 2 in a plate.
