Bread Dosa

Bread dosa is a tasty food, and it belongs to the instant dosa category. Soon after you prepare the batter, if you want to, you can make this dosa.

If you set aside the batter for about 30 minutes, for the batter to better absorb the ingredients, the bread dosa will be tastier.

The bread dosa recipe has the bread, chiroti rava, rice flour and curd or yogurt as the only main ingredients.

To make this dosa, you can use the white bread or wheat bread. Use the later, if possible, because it is said to be healthier.

Do you have to use fresh bread only to make this dosa? You can use fresh bread or left over bread within its expiration date. For instance, if you have some slices of bread remaining, and are bored to eat them, you may want to use such slices to prepare the bread dosa batter.

To make the batter, break the bread slices into small pieces. Soak them in curd and water for about five minutes. Grind the pieces. Mix the ground paste with the other ingredients.

A question some have on the bread dosa recipe is whether to discard the dark-brown, outer part of the bread slices. No, the part should be left intact. The reason is the brown skin adds to the taste of the dosa.

A key point on how to make bread dosa is that to preserve the nutrients in the bread and to prevent its wastage, use the same water you used for soaking for grinding also.

Coconut chutney, onion chutney, onion-tomato chutney and toor dal chutney are among the side dishes you may use to savor the bread dosa.
