Thanks to my friends who gave me the idea of tomato dosa. It is a quick recipe which will be ready to eat within 2 hours from the initial preparation or even shorter.
Dosa can be done by two methods,

1. With soaked rice
2. By using fermented dough

Ingredients: For two
Rice- 1 cup(250 ml)
Tomato- 2 or 3
Onion- half
Coriander leaves- 1 bunch
Green Chilli-1
Ginger- small clove
Tamarind- small pinch
Cumin seeds- 1 tsp
Salt- for taste

Dosa: Soak the rice for about an hour and grind it with salt to make dough. Or if you have a fermented dough, it can be used instead of rice.
Boil tomatoes and peel its skin.
Grind tomatoes to make a puree and mix it with rice dough.
Heat the pan and make dosa.


Wash the leaves and grind it with onion, Chilli, ginger, salt and cumin seeds.
