Dosa and Onion Chutney by my sweet hubby

When it comes to cooking, my hubby is not that much passionate about it as many others. But frankly to say about him he really helps me a lot while cooking. When his frnz come home they alwaz say abt Raj that he is a very good cook and does very well when they use to stay as bachelors. They always ask me have i ever tasted his superb dishes. But never ever i tried his cooking and he always praises me saying that when i have a wife who cooks too good why shud i??? WIth that wrd im into air and never asked him to cook for me. But somewhere i always think about his cooking when im gonna taste that cooking which his frnz use to say. He generally cooks dal, some fry curries, chicken curry, rice, chapatis as they use to say top be their general menu (never fried, poor me..:( ).

Last week its my Birthday and surprisinglyyyyyy as ssoon as i got up in the mrng he is ready with the breakfast thats been prepared with his own hands. There are many surprises on that day and one among them is this breakfast in the mrng. May be its such a small thing to say but i felt so happy for that as its for the first time he is cooking for me without my interest or forcing. It's the little things in life, That brings the greatest happiness. One among such is this.
He does it so many times but may be its like helping me or like when i say the procedure he does it. But this time its all came from his care affection and love. That touched me a lot and im very glad to say that it came out really good.

This is been prepared by him. But the dosa batter was prepared by me and dosa by him... :) and obvious the chutney is made by him. So enjoy the breakfast .... ;)


Ingredients :-

For Dosa:

Idly Rice - 1cup
Urad dal - 1cup
Methi seeds - 1/2 tsp

For Chutney :

Onions - 2 (small)
Red chillis - 4
Garlic - 2 cloves
Ginger - small piece
Jeera - 1tsp
Salt to taste

For tempering :
Oil - 1tsp
Red chillis - 2
Urad dal -
Curry leaves

Procedure :-

For Dosa:
Soak the dal and rice, methi seeds together for 5-6hrs and then grind it into a thin batter by adding little water at a time ferment it overnight. Mix it well and the batter is ready for preparing dosa.
Now heat the tawa and on it add little water and take one big spoon full of batter, pour it in the heated tawa, spread it over from the middle like a small circle shape and fry it for 1min. Now flip it over and fry on the other side too. Repeat the process with the remaining batter as needed and serve it with chutney.

For chutney:
Grind all the chutney ingredients and keep aside.
Now in a pan add little oil and to it add the tempering items and then add the paste to it and fry till the raw smell goes from it. Make sure that there is no raw smell else it may not taste that good.
When fully fried add 1/2 glass water when it starts boiling switch of the flame and serve it with idly or dosa.
