This is a one pot meal dosa as it doesnt need any side dish, it contains some veggies like thotakura also known as amaranth which makes it filling.In place of amaranth leaves you can use cabbage,spinach etc.
I learnt this recipe from one of my kannada neighbours. She called it sambar dosa which surprised me.Then I asked her why she called it sambar dosa she said all the ingredients we use in sambar is used here.It has a tangy spicy flavor.
- 1 cup rice
- 1/4 cup grated coconut
- 4 red chilli
- 1 tsp cummin seeds
- 1/2 cup chopped onions
- 1 cup chopped thotakura ( amaranth )
- 1/2 tsp jaggery
- lemon size tamarind
- 1/2 tsp oil for each dosa
- salt to taste

Soak rice for 4 hrs. Drain the water. In a mixe jar/blender add all the above ingredients except onions and green leaves. Make a smooth batter and keep aside
Take 1 tsp oil in fry pan and add chopped onions and fry till translucent and keep aside.
In another bowl boil 2 cups water and add this hot water, fried onion, chopped veggies to the above prepared batter and mix nicely. Check the consistentcy it should be like rawa dosa batter.
Now heat a pan and pour one cup in a circle starting from the edge of the pan and it should move inwards till the center.
Note: Adding hot water makes the dosa smooth, in place. You can use chopped cabbage, chopped spinach instead of amaranth
