My cousin gave me this recipe for Coconut dosas a few days back and I gave the recipe a try. I liked the taste quite a lot. The batter is easy to prepare and no soaking or fermentation is needed.
This is a variety dosa for dosa lovers. It is a soft dosa and doesn't cook crispy.

Here is the recipe..

Makes 10 large pancake sized dosas

Ingredients :
All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
Coconut - 1 cup grated
Urad daal - 2 teaspoons
Green chilli - 1 or as per spice
Salt to taste
Ginger - 1/4 inch piece
Water as required
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves - 8

Method :
1. Wash and soak urad daal in some water for an hour.
2. In a mixer add grated coconut, soaked urad daal, green chilli, ginger and grind to a paste using water as required.
3. To the ground coconut paste add all purpose flour, salt, water as required and mix well to form a batter of dosa batter consistency.
4. In a small pan heat oil, add mustard seeds and when they splutter add curry leaves. Pour this over the batter and mix well.
5. Heat a tawa and reduce flame to medium once it is hot.
6. Pour a ladle full of batter and spread either like a thin pancake or like a dosa.
7. Sprinkle or spray oil and let it cook.
8. Flip to the other side and cook.

Enjoy coconut dosa.
