GHEE ROAST - A CUTE CONE OF DOSA

Who says no to Dosa that too for Restaurants style Roasted Cones.. I tried many times whenever I prepare dosa to make cones like the way they serve in Restaurants. But I couldn’t make as perfect as they give.. Luckily I got a chance to view the way of making the cone Dosa in Hotel Saravana Bhavan (Saravana Chats near my Doctors clinic), When I have gone there with my little one for check up. He was troubling a lot during our waiting time, running here and there in the entrance...The Restaurant's kitchen was very visible thru a window from the clinic Entrance.. Obviously we got attracted towards the aroma of the food, the way and technique they used to prepare,
garnish and serve the items for the orders.
My smart boy grabs the attraction of the chef by his curious questions like uncle what are u doing, how u are cooking these dishes, Is this for me! can I come there? (in Tamil-Uncle enna panringa, yaruku panringa, Enka! Nan vadhatuma ange(varattuma) Blah blah …Then slowly I started asking him how u r making the cone out of the dosa… Fortunately they got an order for Ghee Roast, he practically shown me the preparing Style.

INGREDIETNS

Dosa batter
Ghee/oil to sprinkle on dosa.


METHOD

Pour the batter in the dosa griddle and sprinkle ghee around it.
Cook in low medium flame. Make a line from the centre to one corner with dosa ladle as shown in the pic 1.( step 1).
Then start rotate the dosa. Refer pics step 2 to 4.

Thanks to the chef of Saravana Bhavan.
Here u go, to get the ghee roast cones from my kitchen.
