The other day we were watching a cookery show on TV. The host made these yummy looking bread dosas which i decided to make with the leftover bread which i had.

Since i had not noted down the amount of ingredients, i have used my
own measures. You are welcome to adjust it to your to your own taste.

The dosa turned out quite nice and my hubby liked it. so noted it down for the future reference. ; )

Bread slices -- 8-10

Semolina (wheat rava) -- 1/2 cup
Rice flour -- 2 tablespoons
Yogurt (curd) -- 3-4 tablespoons

Oil -- 2 tablespoons
Split black gram (urad dal) -- 2 teaspoons
Mustard seeds -- 1 teaspoon
Ginger -- 1/2 inch piece (grated)
Onion -- 1 medium (chopped finely)
Curry leaves -- few (chopped)
Green chilies -- 2-3 (chopped)

Salt to taste
Oil for cooking and greasing

Remove the crust of the bread slices. Dip the slices in water and crumble it.

Take semolina, rice flour, curd in a blender. Add the crumbled bread slices and water to it and run the blender to make a smooth paste.

Transfer the content in a bowl. Keep aside.

Heat two tablespoons of oil in a pan. Add urad dal . When it is light brown add mustard seeds let it crackle.
Now add curry leaves, ginger, green chillies, onion and saute till onions are lightly browned.

Before making dosa, add the browned onions to the prepared batter. adjust the consistency and make dosa on hot tawa. Cook both sides with a teaspoon of oil until light brown spots appear.

Serve hot with any chutney of your choice.
