TOMATO DOSA (ITS TANGY & TASTY)

This is my hubby's favorite dosa. I learnt it from my elder sil. She makes this whenever we visit their place in Coimbatore. At least twice or thrice in a month i used to make it for my husband.

INGREDIENTS
Boiled Rice/Idli Rice- 2 cups
Raw Rice/cooking rice-1/2 cup
Toor Dal/Red gram - 1 cup
Tomatoes - 6 or 1/2 kg
Green chillies - 3 to 5
Redchilli - 10
Ginger 1/2 inch
Asafoetida/Hing/Perungayam 1 pinch
Salt to taste
Curry leaves few

METHOD
Soak rice and dals for 3 to 5 hrs.
First Grind tomatoes, green and red chillies, make a puree of it. Keep aside.
Then grind soaked rice and dals together to a nice batter. At the last grinding stage add this puree and salt.
Grind for few mts, so that everything should mix well.
Add hing and curry leaves. Mix well.
Keep this batter for at least an hour and now the batter is ready to make delish red dosas....
It tastes well with onion chutney/coconut chutney/milagai podi....
