Tomato dosa II

This is a varation of tomato dosa. I was inspired from a restaurant's recipe. When i ordered for tomato dosa, it was not the red colored one, instead it was with a tomato paste or masala spread on the dosa. It was delicious. This is easy and gets ready in no time and does not need any exclusive side dish.

Dosa batter
Tomatoes - 4
Garam Masala - 1/2 tablespoon
Corriander powder - 1/2 tablespoon
Salt- as per taste
Chilli powder - 1/2 tablespoon.

- Slice the tomatoes into small pieces and saute it in a tava.
- Add salt, chilli powder, garam masala, corriander powder to it and cook it in medium flame till it oils into a paste.
- Make dosa and when it turns golden color in the bottom and cooked on the top, apply the masala on to dosa, leave it for a minute, fold it into two and serve.
- There is no need to turn over the dosa here. We will have the golden color on one side and the tomato masala inside.
- Serve it hot. It is spicy, tasty an easy!!
