Bread Dosa

Its cold and these dosas are warming enough as a good breakfast! This golden dosa is made from leftover bread. I had 6 slices on my countertop, not sufficient to feed 4 of us....hence again, Shilpa's bread dosa, (her recipe here) , came to my quick aid...(I have skipped curd, have used water instead!)
These are tasty, as in the sides are crisp and tastes of bread,ginger,spice, and the center is soft and melting!! Such is the dosa effect with change in ingredients basic or main, and we surely get a treat out of them!

Ingredients :
6 slices of bread
1 cup rice flour
1/2 cup rava
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
Salt
Water to grind

Tadka/seasoning:
5 tsp cooking oil
1 tsp rai
1 tsp urad daal
1/2 " fresh ginger-chopped fine
1 medium sized onion -chopped fine

Method :
Soak the bread slices in water and squeeze off the excess water. Grind along with water, rice flour, rava and chilli powder. (Shilpa has used one cup curd to grind this to a batter)
Transfer to a vessel, add sufficient water to bring to a dosa consistency, add salt. Season the tadka ingr. in the same order, browning the onions and then add it to the dosa batter.
Make dosas with oil, frying well on both sides.
Eat with chutney of your choice/ honey. Tastes deliciousssly breaddy..(Haa..there is no such word..)




Enjoy hot on a cold day!!! Brrrrrrrrrrrr.....Happy Winter!!
