Bacchanga Godu Polo Ani Teek Polo/ Water Melon Dosa-Sweet Version & Spicy Version

Sweet Dosa - Watermelon

Bacchang is Konkani word for Watermelon. Red part of melon is consumed as a fruit by most of us, the white part is retained, skinned, cubed and used for making these dosas which can be made sweet OR spicy as per our needs..Usually the spicy ones are served as breakfast item and the sweet version is served in evening with tea as a snack at my place.

The credit for this recipe goes to my Amma, and I have taken help pertaining to measures from Shilpa's blog. Her version of dosa with Red part is here.

My kids and hubby like to have the 'God-a' sweet version of it more over the 'Teek' i.e spicy version.

Recipe For Sweet Dosa :

Ingredients :
2 cups dosa rice
1 cup freshly scraped/dessicated coconut
1 1/2 cups cubed white part of melon
4 tbspn heaped shaved jaggery
1 tsp cardamom powder
Oil / Ghee

Method :
Wash and soak rice for 5 hours. Grind along with all ingredients except the elaichi/cardamom powder. Add cardamom powder just when you are about to make dosas for more flavour.
Heat a non-stick pan, spread the batter, add oil or ghee, flip until cooked on both sides. It can be eaten without any chutney, alone.





Top : White pcs of water melon skinned and cubed, fresh coconut scraped.
Below : One tsp cardamom powder and Jaggery.






Recipe For Spicy Dosa :

Ingredients :
2 cups dosa rice
1 cup freshly scraped/dessicated coconut
1 1/2 cups cubed white part of melon
1" ginger piece
3-4 green chillies
Salt
Oil / Ghee

Method :
Wash and soak rice for 5 hours. Grind all ingredients except the salt. Transfer the batter to a bowl and add/adjust salt.
Heat tava, spread the batter, add oil, flip until cooked on both sides. This dosa tastes good with watery mango pickle.
