Spicy Tousali

Indian Cooking Recipe : Spicy Tousali

Ingredients :
For the Spicy Tousali :
1 cup raw rice
½ cup coconut, grated
¾ cup cucumbr, grated
2 tsp sugar
3 green chillies, chopped
4 to 5 tbsp curds
4 tbsp melted ghee
salt to taste
oil for cooking

For the Ghee or Churna :
5 ¾ cup grated coconut
¼ cup grated gur
1 tsp green cardamom powder

Method :
For the Ghee or Churna :
Melt the gur in a saucepan.
Put the grated coconut and green cardamom and stir well.
Allow it to cool and keep aside.

For the Spicy Tousali :
Soak the rice for 4 hours in lukewarm water.
Drain, wash and grind to make a smooth paste along with the coconut.
Put the cucumber, sugar, green chillies, curds and salt.
If the batter is too thick, adjust the consistency by mixing enough water to make a batter of dropping consistency.
Keep aside for at least 4 hours.
Heat a non-stick tava and grease it lightly with ghee.
Pour 1 ladle full of the batter on the hot tava and spread it to get a 3 to 4 mm. thick dosa.
Cover with a lid and cook only one side over a slow flame until the base becomes golden brown in colour and the top is firm.
Remove the tousali and repeat the same procedure for the remaining batter.
Ready to serve.
