Dosa Upma/Pappu Rotta

     This is our Community dish and is prepared in all our homes regularly.Its one of the yummmmy yummmmy dish which everyone will like a lot.If we prepare it, from the kid till the old people no one will say no to this.In salem and coimbatore many people will prepare this at home and sell outside.Though its a bit lengthy and a time consuming process,once we start having it, we will forget how much time we spent t for preparing.I noted down this recipe from my mom long time back and finally did this now only.Ingredients are little but yet a tasty one.

Kindly bare with the photo lightening and clarity as i prepared in the night time as this is a time consuming dish.

Ingredients :

Toor dal 2 1/2 tbsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Green chillies 4-5
Coriander leaves 1-2 tbsp

Grinding :

Raw rice 1 cup
Grated coconut 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

Seasoning :

Oil Req
Mustard seeds 3/4 tsp
Urad dal 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves Few

Method :

1.Grind the items given under the grinding column.Also pressure cook the toor dal.

2.After removing the grinded batter from the mixie,wash the mixie with the water(used for cooking) and collect the water and keep it in the fire and stir for few min's till the water becomes little thick in consistency(like how we pour vadagam batter).Off the fire n bring to room temperature.

3.Add the thickened batter to the grinded batter and add enough water so that we prepare dosa like rava dosa.Should pour the batter like rava dosa and not like how we prepare normal dosa.

4.Close the dosa with the lid and after few min's turn the dosa and within few sec remove the dosa from the tawa.The dosa should not turn crispy and well as should not become brown in colour.

5.Now cut the dosa into medium size pieces.

6.Prepare the dosas as mentioned in step 4 and cut them into pieces as mentioned in step 5 and keep aside.

7.Now season the items given under the seasoning column and then add the cooked toor dal and green chillies and saute for few min's(till the water content in the cooked dal is absorbed).

8.Now add the cut dosa pieces and mix everything together.

9.Mix well so that dal and cut dosa pieces are mixed together and switch off the fire.Now add the chopped coriander and if interested can add the lemon juice.

10.Now serve hot the dosa upma and enjoy it.

Notes :

1.While cooking the dal it should not become too mushy.I kept only 4 whistles.Also can reduce because once its cooked we should be able to see the whole dal.

2.Once we stir the water which we washed the mixie ,should take care that the water should not become too thick.Once it starts becoming little thick from watery stage,we should put off the fire.

3.Lemon juice is optional but will taste good if we add the lemon juice.

4.Spicy depends only on the green chillies.If we want more spicy can add more green chillies or in the middle can add green chillie paste also.

Sudha Sabarish said...

@prathi,nice to no that ur also from our community.after a very long time got a frnd like u.
btw kommu is called mahanikezhangu in tamil and we put this in UUTAA which we use to prepare in sour curd and keep it even for a yr.We use this as a side dish for upma.In Tamil Nadu we use to call it as kommu only.


We too make this but in slightly different way,we call it killu adai, nice effort to make such traditional dish!
