Aval or flattened rice is a dehusked rice which is flattened into flat light dry flakes. This is normally used to prepare a snack or a light and easy fast food in different Indian cuisine styles. I tried to make dosas with the flattened rice which is not very popular variety of dosa.
Aval/ Flat rice- 1 1/2 cup
Raw rice- 1 1/2 cup
Urad dal- 1 tbsp
oil/ ghee to make dosas
Wash and soak the Aval, Raw rice and urad dal for 2 hours. Wet grind them into a fine batter. Add salt and mix well. Heat a flat pan. grease some oil or ghee over the flat pan and once the pan is hot enough take a laddle full of patter and put it on the centre of the flat pan and gently spread the batter evenly in circular form. Add little oil of ghee and cook them for 2-3 minutes and then flip the dosa gently using a spatula and cook the other side for a minute. Remove from the heat and serve hot with coconut chutney or any other chutney and sambar.
Note: The dosa has to be handled carefully when flipping them, as they are soft, they tend to break. If you prefer you can season the batter with mustard seeds, chenna dal, curry leaves, green chillies and a pinch of hing.
