Dosa, is quite clearly the most popular meal, among the whole of South Indian Cuisine. Dosa is something which does not need a specific time to be consumed & there are tons of different Dosa types.You can eat it pretty much throughout the day, for breakfast, lunch, dinner or in between meals as a delicious and healthy snack too.
Different Dosa Types : –
Dosa, which is cooked, somewhat like a pancake, with rice and lentils as the basic ingredients, actually is quite a few types. We can list out the top few types of Dosas and what they consist of:
Plain dosa: The evergreen Dosa and what we see at the top of most of the South Indian Menus. The main ingredients include Rice and Lentils, soaked overnight and prepared in the form of a batter. It goes best as a snack due to its light taste and texture and tastes great when accompanied with sides like Sambar and Chutney. You can easily afford, eating more than just one as pretty hard to resist.
Well, pretty much the type of Dosa that serves the purpose of a complete meal and arguably the most popular choice among Dosas. The core ingredients are quite similar to the Plain Dosa, besides the filling (masala) which is a mixture of potato, spices and a few other chopped veggies. The filling, is stuffed after flipping the Plain Dosa and sprinkling some oil on the surface.
Neer Dosa, is mostly consumed and one of the main Dosa choices in the state of Karnataka. Neer Dosa which also implies to water, has coconut as an important ingredient, in addition to the rice based batter. The beauty about this Dosa is the aroma that comes from it, while it’s hot and fresh. You can enjoy the Neer Dosa, with tamarind based chutney as coconut is already included in it.
Pesarattu Dosa, is also known as Moong Dosa, as Moong Dal is the main ingredient used while cooking it. Mostly consumed in the state of Andhra Pradesh and a great choice for breakfast. It has the goodness of proteins and healthy carbs which is due to the whole Moong Dal. Pesarattu goes best with spicy ginger chutney, sambar and upma.
Paper Dosa, as the name speaks for itself, is as thin as paper. The most crispiest among the Dosas, is eaten mainly as an evening snack or anytime between meals too. It also happens to be the longest Dosa of all and can be easily shared by two people. The crunchy Paper Dosa tastes best when eaten alongside coconut chutney or potato based gravy.
