Besan Dosa & Coriander Chutney – Kothamalli Chutney

Besan Dosa With Coriander Chutney
Yesterday, our dinner was Besan dosa with coriander chutney. Coriander chutney is a favorite of mine and was very often made at home. Besan dosa was something which I found in a weekly long time back, didn’t give a try till yesterday. Together they made a good combination. These dosas are to be made a little thicker than normal dosas. Hope you like them too…

Another version of Besan Dosa can be found at Revathi’s Blog.

Let me get to the recipe:

Besan Dosa:


Besan Flour – 1 Cup
Wheat Flour – 1/2 Cup
Sour Curd – 1 Tbsp
Ginger Paste – 1 Tsp
Salt – As per taste
Chilli Powder – 2 Tsps or Green Chillies – 5 (Finely Chopped)

Mix everything together with enough water to attain a dosa consistency batter. I used around 1 1/4 cup water. Pour a little thicker than normal dosas. Serve with coriander chutney.

Coriander Chutney:

Coriander – 1 Bunch
Jeera – a little
Onion – 1 medium
Garlic flakes – 3 medium
Tamarind – A little bigger than a gooseberry size
Salt – As per taste

Chop the onion into big pieces. Slice the garlic. Fry coriander, onion and garlic seperately in oil. Fry till onion and garlic turn light brown and the coriander is wilted. Grind everything together with tamarind, jeera and salt. Coriander Chutney is ready.

Addendum: I forgot to mention dry red chillies in the recipe. Dry red chillies ( 2 or 3) are to be fried in oil and added to the rest of the ingredients during the grinding process.
