Mantralaya Mutt – Appointment of Successor Seer

I keep visiting the http://www.raghavendramutt.org/ almost regularly. The website is updated almost everyday, and I like to see the pictures posted on several important occasions. I visited it today to see if there were any pictures posted for Sree Narashima Jayanthi. Our beloved Rayaru, is an avatara of Prahaladha right? And Lord Narashima came just for the sake of our Prahalada. The website has amazing pictures of Sree Narashima Jayanthi. Take a look here:

However, the next few links caught my attention. The links which pointed to appointment of successor seer to Mantralaya Mutt Sri Raja.S.Pavamanacharya the present Diwan of Sri Matha. Read more details here:

Tomato Utappam – Tomato Dosa

Tomato Omelet it is usually called. I changed the name so as to not give a heart attack to the many visitors who are very traditional. This dosa has no EGGS. However, it has onions. Very healthy, very tasty, takes a little longer to cook when compared to regular dosa if you want it crispy. I used to make this dosa regularly when I first got married. After Sneha was born things changed, and I prepared dishes which she liked and this dosa went away.

Last week, I had just 1 cup dosa batter which wasn’t enough for making dosa for two people. I could have made Onion uttapam, but seeing red ripe tomatoes decided to make Tomato Utappam/Tomato Dosa or Tomato Omelet. Of course, you can make it even without left over Dosa batter. I have ingredients listed for both batters below.

Ingredients using left over Dosa Batter:

  • 1 cup left over Dosa batter
  • 2 cups Besan flour
  • 3 tomatoes chopped finely
  • 1 large onion chopped finely
  • 1/2 bunch coriander leaves
  • 4-5 green chillies (adjust to your taste)
  • 1/2 tsp jeera
  • Salt to taste

Ingredients for regular Tomato Dosa:

  • 1/2 cup Rice flour
  • 1/2 cup fine sooji rava
  • 2 cups Besan flour
  • 3 tomatoes chopped finely
  • 1 large onion chopped finely
  • 1/2 bunch coriander leaves
  • 4-5 green chillies (adjust to your taste)
  • 1/2 tsp jeera
  • Salt to taste

tomato-omlette

Method:

  • Chop the tomatoes, onion, coriander and green chillies finely.
  • the smaller you chop, the crispier the Dosa
  • Mix all the ingredients, with enough water to make dosa batter.
  • Heat one griddle(Tava), and put the batter.
  • Cover the dosa, so it gets cooked properly on one side
  • Flip over and cook on other side as well
  • On another stove, heat another griddle(Tava). When it is done on both sides, transfer to other griddle(Tava)
  • Let it cook on low heat until the Dosa is crispy.
  • This dosa takes quite a while to become crispy because of the Tomatoes and Besan.
  • I used two Griddles (tava), so I could make them faster and crispier.
  • Serve with Pickles, Chatni or just eat them plain like we did.

The second way of making the ಮಾವಿನಕಾಯಿ ಚಿತ್ರಾನ್ನ  – Mavinakayi Chitranna. The first method has been posted here. This is quite simple.

This second method is quite tedious, but worth all the extra work. The taste is just amazing. It involved dry grinding and next wet grinding. Maybe if you can do it in one go, easy for you.
