Kal Dosa/ Kal Dosai

As I mentioned in the kuzhipniyaram recipe here goes another one by using idli batter. This is called Kal Dosa, as it cooks on a heavy dosa pan (Kallu means stone in Malayalam) as shown below.

Kal for Dosa

Idli Batter : 1 cup
Salt : to taste
Oil : 2-3 teaspoons

Step 1:
Keep Dosa kal (pan) on heat. Once it is hot, grease the pan. Better to use onion for greasing which helps Dosa to come out easily from the pan/kal.

Step 2:
Pour a laddle of batter on the middle of the dosa pan. Kal dosa is thick one, so do not try to flatten it like we do for ghee dosa or masala dosa. Just flatten it as shown in the below picture.

Step 3: Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of oil on top of the dosa. Close the lid and reduce the heat to medium/low. If you cook on high flame, dosa wont be properly cooked in the middle as it is a thick one.

Step 4: After around 4-5 minutes, open the lid and check. If it is properly cooked, take out and serve. You can turn the dosa and cook again for a minute or two, if you prefer to cook on both sides.

Kal dosa is served best with sambar & white coconut chutney.

I love cooking and trying out various recipes, and also to come up with ways to achieve good results in reasonable time and effort ? All of the recipes I post here were tried out by me at least 2-3 times (if not a few dozen times) before I was happy with a simple method which gives me good results. Hope you enjoy making these dishes. Would be thrilled if you let me know in the comments how your experiment went. If you have recipe requests for any Malabar dishes, please contact me and I’ll make every effort to get the recipe, try it out and post it here.
