Adai Dosa and Tomato Roast

This is a very tasty and healthy breakfast from Tamil Nadu. You can serve this with sambar or chutney or even tomato sauce, but somehow I like Tomato roast, my Mom's style, with this.

 So heres what U need for the Adai Dosa

Raw Rice: 1/2 cup
Urud Dal: 1/4 cup
Toor Dal: 1/4 cup
Channa Dal: 1/4 cup
Moong Dal or Masoor Dal: 1/4 cup

Onion: 1 chopped fine
Green Chilly: 2 small chopped
Ginger: 1 tsp chopped
Pepper: 1/4 tsp
Salt: as required

Soak the Raw rice, Urud Dal, Channa dal and Masoor/moong dal for 8 hours (overnight) and grind to a smooth paste adding water. The batter should be slightly thicker than the dosa batter.
Now mix in the rest of the ingredients.
Now heat the griddle and pour a ladle of batter and spread like for dosa (but not as thin)
Cook both sides and serve hot with chutney, sambar or Tomato roast.

Recipe for Tomato Roast:

Onions: 1 thinly sliced
Ginger: 1/2 inch chopped fine
Tomatoes: 2 medium chopped
Green Chillies: 3 slit
Pepper Powder: 1/4 tsp
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
Mustard: 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves; as needed
Salt and Oil: as required

Heat oil in a kadai and splutter the mustard seeds and curry leaves.
Throw in the onions, ginger and green chillies and saute till onions are properly browned.
Now add the turmeric powder, pepper powder salt and saute for a few seconds.
Add the tomatoes and cook till done.
The tomato roast can be served as a side dish for chapatis, Adai Dosa etc. You can also add boiled eggs to the tomato roast for egg-tomato roast.
