Dosa is a delicious Indian recipe that’s usually served as a breakfast, and especially this brown crispy ghee roast is my all time favorite that’s topped completely with ghee, these are the classic few Indian dishes that I have always adored and craved a lot to have it every day for my breakfast.
But I have never imagined myself to cook this yummylicious Ghee roast and when I tried it out, it worked like a charm, I was awed by the way this ghee roast turned out, I could actually bring the cone shape near to perfection.
In restaurants, we have seen ghee roast served like a cone, these dosas greatly amuses me and it’s actually a must to order dish when ever am out to a restaurant. My daughter always calls this as Cone Dosa and by default her first choice in any restaurant is Ghee Roast.
Preparing a ghee roast at home is a simple task and u can very well bring the cone shape and treat your family with this mouth watering Ghee roast.
Rice – 4 cup / 4 part
Whole Urad Dal without Skin / Ulundam Paruppu-1 cup / 1 part
Salt- to taste ( See Notes below the recipe)
Water as needed
Soak the rice and Urad Dal separately and grind to a smooth paste.
Mix both the batters together, add salt to taste and keep the batter for fermenting overnight.
Add water to the batter, if u feel that your batter is too thick.
Place a dosa tawa on flame and make dosas.
Pour melted ghee on top and roast till the dosa becomes brown and crisp.
Steps to make a Cone Shaped Dosa:
Spread the batter thinly on the tawa, so that you can get a very crispy dosa.
Pour ghee (as much as u want) here I have used 2 teaspoons of Ghee.
When it starts becoming brown and crisp, simmer the flame and make a small cut on the dosa with the dosa ladle from the middle to outside.
Start rolling the dosa till it reaches the cut and dosa turns into a cone shape.
Serve Ghee roast dosa with hot fiery chutney.
For the Chutney
Coconut – 1 cup
Gram Dal (roasted) –1/2 cup
Green chillies – 3

Steps to make Coconut Chutney
