Instant Maida Dosa (Maida Phanna polo)

Maida phanna polo is a crisp dosa that can be made in minutes and is also tasty. It does not need any chutney or curry to go with. It is slightly spicy and is crispy when eaten hot. Maida can be substitued with Whole wheat atta too. Since this can be fixed within minutes and no fermentation is required I make it quite often with whole wheat flour.

Whats needed:
To Grind:
5 Green chilli's
1 small piece ginger
Few corainder leaves
2 tblsp grated coconut.
1 cup maida
1 tsp curds
1 tblsp semolina
salt and sugar to taste.

For seasoning(Phanna):
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Jeera
few curry leaves

1) Grind green chilli's, ginger, coriander leaves and grated coconut coarsely with water.

2) Mix maida, curds, semolina, salt, sugar and ground paste with water to dosa batter consistency. Mix well to avoid any lumps.

3) Heat oil in a small pan add mustard seeds. When they start spluttering add jeera. When Jeera splutters add curry leaves. Add this tadka to the dosa batter and mix well.

4) Heat tawa and spread thin dosa's in circular patterns. Sprinkle little oil and fry on both the sides. These dosas are crisp when hot and get soft after a while.
